2020 Pole Green Park 5K presented by Collegiate Running Association
VERY IMPORTANT.....SPECTATOR LIMITS
Pole Green Park will strictly enforce the 250 person limit for our event. If you are a coach, please impress upon your athletes and parents that this race is a VERY special circumstance and we simply cannot have many spectators. For this reason we ask that each athlete only bring 2 parents for spectating. We cannot overstate the importance of keeping our numbers small. More detailed information will follow once athletes register (SEE ABOVE).
We will be following the Hanover County Parks and Recreation Phase 3 athletic field use protocol. To ensure the safety of our athletes, coaches, staff and spectators face coverings will be required at all times. Athletes can remove masks during warm up, racing, and cool down.
*Physical distancing for all athletes, coaches and spectators (outside of family units) on and off the course
*At packet pickup, all athletes and coaches are required to fill out a 4 question COVID19 questionnaire/waiver
*This is a private event therefore FACE COVERINGS WILL BE WORN AT ALL TIMES for NON ATHLETES. PLEASE DO NOT RISK THE HEALTH OF THE RUNNERS...IF YOU ARE SICK OR HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO CORONA VIRUS.... PLEASE..... STAY HOME!!!!!
IF YOU DON'T WANT TO FOLLOW THE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND FACE COVERINGS RULES....PLEASE.....STAY HOME!!!!!
Upon arrival athletes will proceed to the check-in table where their temperature will be checked, they will complete a short 4 question screening and sign a waiver. Anyone with a temperature above 100.3 WILL NOT be permitted to race.
