Socially Distanced Running Events!

June 28th event To Be Rescheduled As We're Awaiting Town Approvals! 😟

We are excited to launch an our introductory running event!  This is NOT a mass start event and is intended for all capabilities! Runners will be timed against others in their respective age categories and results will be posted at the end of the day to see how you did!

Social distancing will be stressed and monitored through all aspects of this event from start to finish!

Proceeds from this event will go towards supporting youth within our programs that teach coding and programming with the ultimate expectations being to change the lives and opportunities for these students!

Event Day!

When you arrive, please ensure that you park in designated parking areas and maintain social distancing protocols at all times. Make your way to registration a few minutes before your start time to sign in and to receive additional instructions for your event. We will have course maps available but we encourage you to view and make note of the routes online prior to the event. We will have course turn signage placed out and start/finish signage.

Events!

We start with one event with the intention of ensuring that we are doing so successfully and safely before we expand to other "tentatively" scheduled events. We want these to be both "Covid" and on course safe and on routes and roads that are suitable for runners.
