RETURN TO SAFE IN-PERSON EVENTS

We are excited as we prepare to go back to in-person running along the Malibu coastline, but in order to do so safely, we want to let our runners know what we are doing to create a safe post-pandemic running environment. These guidelines outline what we may be implementing to reduce the risk for participants, volunteers, our team, and communities. We will continue to monitor the development of the Covid-19 pandemic and update the guidelines to reflect standards from the World Health Organization and guidance from city and state officials and medical personnel.

 

We are committed to delivering the best participant experience with the necessary adjustments so that you can race safely, race smart and race your best.

 

STAFF & PARTICIPANT SAFETY

  • We will implement enhanced cleaning of common venue areas. Hand sanitizer, handwashing stations and disinfectant wipes will be readily available around our event venues.

  • Staff and volunteers will be provided with face coverings, and will be instructed to wear their face covering properly at all times in and around the event venue. Disposable gloves will be used in applicable areas.

  • Participants will be required to wear face coverings at packet pick-up, in and around the event venue, including the start corrals and finish line areas.

  • We will implement body temperature screening. Individuals with a body temperature greater than 100.4° Fahrenheit, or 38° Celsius will not be allowed to participate, volunteer or work.

Touch point Minimization

  • We will be reducing or removing touch points and points of interaction between staff, participants, and volunteers without compromising event safety and security.

  • Activities such as packet pick-up, expo, race store, and finish line will be adapted to minimize person-to-person contact.

  • Aid stations might be reconfigured with more space to minimize both participant-to volunteer and participant-to-participant touchpoints or eliminated, and participants encouraged to carry their own nutrition and hydration by using items such as hydration vests and belts.

  • All on-course products will be single-serve, prepackaged items.

PARTICIPANT DISTANCING

  • We will institute measures to increase space for participants and supporting personnel in areas such as expo, packet pickup and start/finish line.

  • Alternative start times and configurations may be implemented to reduce the number of participants waiting in an enclosed area and to optimize distancing opportunities. The most significant element in course density reduction is being able to extend the duration of the start line program, which results in reduced density across the course and through to the finish.

  • Modification or elimination of non-essential race services and functions, such as expo and merchandise may also occur.

"WHAT IF"

  • If the event is taking place with any modifications due to mandates from city and state officials and medical personnel, normal deferral and cancellation policies apply.

  • If the event date is changed, and you are not able to participate in the new date, you will be able to convert your registration to a virtual run or defer to a future year free of charge. If you decide to switch to a virtual event, we will provide a credit for any difference in pricing you might have paid, and this can be used either for another virtual entry (get family or friends to tag along) or towards our future events.

  • If the event is canceled due to COVID-19, you will be able to convert your registration to a virtual run or defer to a future year free of charge. If you decide to switch to a virtual event, we will provide a credit for any difference in pricing you might have paid, and this can be used either for another virtual entry (get family or friends to tag along) or towards our future events.

CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY
