IN-PERSON EVENT DETAILS;

COVID precautions in place:

This year’s race participation will be capped for the live race, however, virtual options are available. We will have two separate race windows for you to choose from when you sign up.  Arrive anytime in your window and proceed directly to the start for individual release.

The Start and Finish line will be located in the back parking area of the Orange Liberty Middle School

Due to the Midnight Ball Drop, and Ringing in 2021, SLEEP IN! The Race will be split into 2 - 30 minute windows. Times will be 9-9:30 and 9:30-10am. Arrive anytime in your chosen time frame and start when you get there.  You are welcome to run with friends and family. Please stay in your car until you are ready to run.  We ask everyone to socially distance at the start and wear a mask until you are on the course.

Indoor facilities will not be available this year, but port-a-potties will be available as well as hand sanitizing stations.  There will not water stations on course, so bring water if you think you will need it.  There will be water and a snack at the finish line.

While we love to hang out afterward and celebrate the New Year, please do not congregate at the finish, remember masks when not running and social distancing.  We have unfortunately had to simply our post-race feast to abide by the Health Department’s guidelines.  Everyone will receive an individual bag with your race medal, water, and a snack.

If you choose the virtual route, you can run whenever it fits your schedule.  Results can be entered on the race website under the “RESULTS” tab any time during the day.
