COVID-19 Update: August 29th, 2020

We are planning on holding the race! We are moving forward with all the planning including making several changes we feel necessary to avoid spread of the virus, based on information from the CDC and Southeast Utah Health Department. One thing remains the same: it will be the same incredible course!

Everyone in the world has been affected one way or another by COVID. My thoughts go out to those most affected and I hope we all can take care of ourselves and each other; physically, mentally, and financially through this unique and challenging time in history.

It is difficult to predict what will happen with the virus this coming November. With schools starting up and the flu season also starting up; it is possible there could be another spike in the virus. We are taking a number of precautions that will allow participants to enjoy the race while also social distancing, to avoid transmission of the virus. We hope that our county does not have another shut-down. That or natural disaster would be the only reason we foresee having to cancel the race.

It would be very beneficial to all involved to get out on the course and run/walk and breathe in the beautiful Canyon Country. And certainly, training for the race is a good boost to the immune system as well as the heart, lungs and muscles, which all play a role in fighting virus and flu.

Please look over the INFO page of the website so that you are aware of the changes to the race this year. Specifically, the pre-race info link on the INFO page has a lot of information. Here are some of the changes:

1. The maximum number of participants has been reduced and waves sizes have been reduced and waves will be spread out throughout three days. Please see instructions to choose your new wave start time on the INFO page.

2. Bib numbers will be mailed! Please update your physical and email address on your IMathlete account so that you receive your bib in the mail!

3. New race procedures are on the pre-race info page, including instructions for the start, finish and at aid stations. Please review this so you are aware of these procedures.

As of now the current posted refund/defer/transfer policy is still in effect (see refund policy on INFO page). If you need or want to skip this years race, please refer to this page for information and instructions to defer to next year.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We look forward to seeing you in November!
