2020.... What Strange Trails!

 

Hello Running Friends!  

We hope you and your loved ones are well during this challenging time and that you are still getting some trail miles under your feet. We here at Evergreen Trail Runs have done our best to remain positive and make the best of bad time. Its kinda like type 3 fun...maybe?. Along with Orca Running we have hosted some incredible virtual runs and we are brainstorming new exciting trail runs for the future! We truly appreciate your flexibility, understanding, and kind words.

A lot of you are wondering what our plan is for our upcoming trail runs.  There is still a lot of uncertainty, however, we are hopeful that by August (think Tiger Peak Challenge!!!) we will be able to hold events with physical distancing measures in place. Our races will look a little different, but it is really all of you that make our races great and we are looking forward to seeing you all soon! For everyone's safety we will be putting the following guidelines into effect:

Check in and Race Day Registration:

  • Staff and volunteers will wear masks and gloves

  • Online race registration will stay open through the morning of race day, but there will be no in-person day of registration.

  • Staggered starts and check-in times; different distances will start one hour apart. Stay tuned for your check-in and start times.

  • Runners will need to wear masks while checking in and while at aid stations (not necesarily while running, unless you want to).

  • Runners will need to remain in their cars until their wave starts.

During The Race: 

  • Staff and volunteers will wear masks and gloves

  • Hand washing stations at portable restrooms 

  • Increased number of waves (max. 25 people)

  • All pre-race announcements and dad jokes will be in the pre-race email to prevent crowding

  • Aid Stations will have hand sanitizer and wipes, you must sanitize your hands and don your face mask before coming into the aid station.

  • You will not make contact with the food or drinks a volunteer will hand you what food or beverages you would like.

  • No Gear Check will be provided, this is to minimize contact

Post Race: 

  • All post race food will be pre-packaged (sorry, no pizza or Tacos!)

  • Post Race Results can be checked via link provided in pre-race email

  • Congregating will not be allowed

  • Minimal family members allowed

  • Awards will be given at the race

We will be in touch soon with more details regarding your particular race(s) with specific changes that are being made to that race to ensure everyone's safety.  

Thank you for your patience and I can't wait to be running through the woods marking your next race course with brightly colored streamers!

See you out on the trails soon!
