SOLID day of racing.  It sure felt good (albeit hot) to be on the start line.  We appreciate your continued support with social distancing and helping us stick to our timelines.  We had a great day of racing with really good times and few disappointing DNFs – this too is part of racing.  Tomorrow we get ready for the biggies with the 40 milers taking off first and the 40k crew after.  Be SURE to give yourself enough time to grab your packet in the am if you have not picked it up yet.

SEPTEMBER 16, 2020 – EVENT STATUS UPDATE

OCTOBER 16 – 18 IS ON! 

In order to return to racing safely, we have outlined our COVID operational plan. Our aim is to help prevent the spread of the virus while still offering an outdoor recreation opportunity which provides much needed physical and mental outlets for our community. The event will be scaled down with the focus strictly on competitive racing for this go-around.

Each day of the event we will host 1 competitive event.  Therefore, the following events will not be a part of the October 16 – 18 2020 weekend:

We plan to bring these ALL back for our regularly scheduled March 12 – 14, 2021 event.

 NOTE – **If you are registered for our KIDS RACE, KIDS CAMP or GRAN FONDO your registration will automatically be pushed to March 12 – 14, 2021. Nothing to do, we will see you then! If this doesn’t work for you send us an email.

This revised format will allow us to limit volunteers, spectators and large gatherings.  We believe that an outdoor event, with proper precautions poses far fewer risks than the average trip to the grocery store.

General statement regarding CV19 and these events –
In simplest terms, if you don’t feel well, stay at home.
If you have experienced symptoms within 14 days of racing, stay at home.
If you are not comfortable racing under the protocols or they are not stringent enough for you, don’t sign up or race.
For those that are registered and not comfortable, defer to 2021.
We are simply trying to provide an option to race with guidelines that are acceptable to the county for an event.

Thank you for your support –
Mike & Sage Melley
