Long Course athletes will need to complete 2 loops on a portion of this Bike course. Long Course athletes will need to keep track of their own number of loops while biking.

  • We will follow any current local health recommendations.
  • We ask that any participant, volunteer, or spectator who is experiencing any illness symptoms or has recently tested positive for COVID to refrain from attending the event. Any participants who are unable to attend the race due to illness or injury or those would prefer to complete their race at home can be switched to the At-Home division.
  • We work with local city officials in planning our race and defining safety plans. We have Police and EMS support onsite during the event.
  • Our volunteers are assigned to area captains who lead them in role-specific training to prepare them for supporting the race.
