Covid-19 Policies

To prioritize the health and safety of all participants and volunteers we are implementing the following guidelines and procedures.


* Do not participate if

    * you are feeling sick or ill,

    * have a fever or experiencing flu-like     symptoms, or

    * you have been in close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

* Individuals from high risk groups for COVID-19 complications should consult their physician before participating.

* Participants are strongly encouraged to not attend, or switch to the virtual event if they are experiencing any symptoms.


* All individuals are required to wear a mask or face covering except while actively participating in the event.

* Fewer volunteers are being utilized to lessen the potential spread of the virus.

* Practice social distancing – ensure appropriate spacing between participants and volunteers, at all times.

* Do not engage in traditional forms of physical contact (handshakes, high-fives or hugs or close group pictures/selfies, unless from the same household. Please respect other’s personal space. If they seem uncomfortable, add more distance between if possible.

* Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after using a port-a-potties

* Please practice course etiquette

 * Lower volume in earbuds or use just one to maintain ability to hear other participants or volunteers.

* Do not linger at the Finish Line. Please keep moving forward when you finish so participants behind you have the same opportunity to finish that you did.  

* Please spread out and social distance during the awards ceremony. 


If the 2021 The Great 5k Pumpkin Run is cancelled due to COVID-19, we will pivot to a virtual race option.


As guidelines are updated and/or revised, participants will be notified by social media and the email given at registration.  

By registering for this race, you are agreeing to these policies.

Thank you! 🎃
