In addition to implementing actions and best practices mandated by governing authorities and local health and safety experts we have taken the following steps to ensure the safety and well being of everyone attending our events. 

1. Hand sanitizer will be available for use throughout the event, including around high traffic areas, after every obstacle, as well as in and around portable toilets. These will be refreshed by staff throughout the day.
2. The use of sealed, bottled water at aid stations instead of cups and spigots.
3. Increased safety and hygiene procedures for staff and volunteers including regular hand sanitation.
4. All event staff and volunteers will wear face coverings at all times. In addition to social distancing measures, racers are requested to wear a face covering in the festival area while not on the course. Reusable face masks and gloves will also be available for purchase on site.
5. To manage the volume of racers onsite, each racer will be given a specific arrival and departure time for entry and exit from the event to ensure total participant numbers at any one time are kept under strict control.
6. Group sizes will be reduced at the start zones 
7. Contactless temperature checks will be conducted for everyone entering the event space. A person with a body temperature reading of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) or higher will not be permitted to enter.
