COVID race protocols

2022 Covid-19 Protocol

Masks and social distancing will not be required. Virtual racing is available for any participants who would like to choose that option.

Updates and adjustments will be made as directed by Summit County Health. Unless directed otherwise all races will be held in-person with minimal restrictions.

 

2021

Below is the 2021 Protocol. Current 2022 plans will not require mask or distance protocols. However, some or all of this may be adopted for 2022 races as local health officials direct.

Currently, Summit County and Park City have granted permission to run in person with strict distance, mask, and sanitize protocols. These are changes that allow for safely racing while minimizing groupings of people in close contact.
