In the past months, your unbreakable spirit and resolve to stay race ready has inspired us to work harder than ever before. We’re excited to announce that your dedication will not be in vain. With the help of local government officials and leading medical experts, we’ve developed a set of guidelines that allow us to safely reopen live races. After months of pressure testing, it’s here. First on June 13th in Jacksonville, Florida, and eventually worldwide, The Unbreakable Code will lead us back to a world where we can all RACE SAFE TOGETHER.
Reduced customer touchpoints to minimize physical interaction between racers, and racers and event staff.
Additional cleaning and sanitization of customer touch-points throughout the festival area, including check-in areas, toilets, medal and shirt collection, results, payment collection points, and at aid stations and obstacles.
Hand sanitizer will be available for use throughout events, including around high traffic areas, after every obstacle, in and around portable toilets. These will be refreshed by staff throughout the day.
The use of sealed, bottled water at aid stations instead of cups and spigots.
Increased safety and hygiene procedures for staff and volunteers including regular hand sanitization.
All event staff and volunteers will wear face coverings at all times. In addition to social distancing measures, racers are requested to wear a face covering in the festival area while not on course. Reusable face masks will also be available for purchase on site.
Transparent plastic shields will be installed at key interaction points, such as racer check-in, to create separation between both racers and staff.
To manage the volume of racers onsite, each racer will be given a specific arrival and departure time for entry and exit from the event to ensure total participant numbers at any one time are kept under strict control.
Customer throughput will be monitored to ensure the number of people within the event space is kept to acceptable levels at all times.
Heat sizes will be reduced, and courses themselves will be widened from previous standards to ensure safe spacing while running/walking and at obstacles.
Dedicated lanes, along with designated waiting spots, will be provided at areas where racers tend to congregate, such as at check-in and at obstacles. Where lines are formed, distancing markers will be used to ensure safe distancing.
Contactless temperature checks will be conducted for everyone entering the event space. A person with a body temperature reading of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) will not be permitted to enter.
Each customer shall be required to complete a declaration when checking in at the event that they are not currently infected by COVID-19 and have not had, or knowingly been in contact with, someone experiencing any of the following COVID-19 symptoms in the past 14 days:
There is no on-site registration for this event. Registration and payment must be made online prior to race day.
Food and beverage offerings will be pre-packaged, and these zones will not have seating, along with distancing guides placed for people waiting in line.
