RACE VENUE COVID-19 SAFETY GUIDELINES

  1. If you have symptoms of COVID-19 you may not participate. 
    1. We ask that you conduct a COVID-19 Home Safety Self-Check and we will also conduct one with you before you pick up your packet. You can see the COVID-19 Home Safety Self-Check above. If you are experiencing symptoms, please stay home. You can review a list of symptoms at the Center for Disease Control website here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html 
    2. If you cannot participate on race day, please contact Rebekah at zoomracingusa12@gmail.com and complete the race virtually when you are able. We will mail you your swag by and link to log your virtual time, when you are able to complete the event. 
  2. There is no in-person race day registration at the race venue, but you can register online and then come see us. You can register online at home at CincinnatiTriathlon.com all the way through race morning. So register online and then come and see us. 
  3. Masks will be optional for athletes and staff. We will have disposable masks at packet pick-up if you need one.  
  4. Athletes will receive all their race supplies in a bag at Packet Pickup. This will limit staff and athlete contact. Race bags will be pre-packed and handled by staff that have passed a COVID-19 Home Safety Self Check. Athletes will need to pick-up their timing chips separately on race morning. 
  5. There will be a separate Start and Finish line so we can socially distance and allow one-way flow of athletes on race day. These will be clearly marked on race day. 
  6. We will have staggered starts in waves on race day. See the information above for start time and procedures. 
  7. Hand sanitizer stations will be provided at the start and finish line areas, as well as at packet pickup. Staff will also regularly clean high traffic areas throughout the race. 
  8. As recommended by the local Board of Health all aid stations will be self-serve. Hydration and refueling products will be left on tables on course. Each product will be in a pre-packaged single serving container. Racers may also carry all of their own aid and hydration on course or leave their refueling products next to the course (socially distanced from others). 
  9. There will not be a post-race party. Instead we are giving athletes their post race meal to go when they finish the race. You can pick up your post-race meal goodie bag after you cross the finish line. 
  10. There is to be no spitting, or projections of any bodily fluid before, during or after race. We will have portable restrooms at packet pickup and on course for you to use. 
  11. All participants must avoid any physical contact with other participants, which includes high fives, fist bumps, or close contact before, during or after the event. 
  12. Before and during the race, participants must abide by the six-foot social distancing requirement when lining up or passing other participants. Additionally on course, please try to give other races plenty of space and whenever possible keep 6-10 feet of distance between you and any other racers. 
  13. Spectators are not permitted on the course.. 
  14. Participants are encouraged to gather their belongings and leave immediately after the event. We discourage congregating before or after the race. 
  15. There will be Emergency personnel on site to assist in the case of emergency, including Lifeguards, Law Enforcement and Medical staff. They will all be equipped with protective and safety equipment.
