Spectator & Travel

We are asking spectators to stay away from the start/finish area. Help us to be able to continue to produce these events in the future. The best way to support runners physically distanced will be to cheer them on along the course rather than in the start / finish area. Spectators are also encouraged to download the RaceJoy app which will allow you to send audible cheers to your runner and track them during the race. We understand this is a very memorable experience for some runners, and if you insist on having a spectator at the start / finish area, please use the RaceJoy app to allow for runner tracking so you only come to the finish area when your runner is finishing and leave within 5 minutes of their finish.
