CASA SUPERHERO RUNINSTRUCTIONS Here is your update for both live and virtual runners .....
SHIRT / NUMBER PICKUP
ALL shirt and bib number pickup will be held prior to the race, at The Children's Haven, 1083 Marietta Hwy in Canton on Thursday 8/27 from 8am-4pm
You CAN pick up for friends and family. Live runners must pick up their items during these times, and we encourage virtual runners to do the same.
RACE NIGHT The race is of course Friday night, 8/28 at Etowah River Park in Canton. Once you enter the park, proceed to the main parking area. Please do not arrive more than 30 minutes ahead of your wave (your wave assignment is on your bib)
You will need to check in at the red medical tent for a temperature check (it will be near the restroom pavilion). The start will be near the playground in the back corner of the parking lot. Please wait in your cars until called to the start for your assigned wave.
This is a brand new course, but there will be plenty of cones, arrows, and volunteers on the course to guide you.
The finish is in the main field in front of the amphitheater. Once you are finished, please proceed to the parking lot to your car. Unfortunately we cannot have people hanging around the finish area.
There will be bottled water at the finish. Please plan on bringing your own hydration for the course if you wish to have hydration while running (although there will be small bottles of water on the course should you need one).
Awards will be mailed to our overall and age group winners. Complete results will be online on active.com following the race. You can find them HERE.
The fun run is untimed, and it will be 2 loops of the active oval, starting and finishing near the start of the 5k. It starts at 630pm, with the 5K waves immediately following it. RULES OF THE LIVE RUN - While there is plenty of free parking at the race, we ask that you please do NOT arrive more than 30 min prior to your wave and stay in your cars while waiting. - You must check in at the medical tent to have a temperature check. If you have a fever, you will not be able to participate. - All our staff and volunteers will wear masks to further enhance safety measures. - Waves will go off at their assigned times. We will further limit the number of people at the start line by sending participants off in smaller groups every 1-2 minutes depending on the size of the wave. YOU WILL BE CHIP TIMED so it won't affect your race time. - You MUST run the wave you choose, no exceptions. - Once you are done, please do not hang around the finish line. We need to keep the area clear in accordance with social distancing guidelines. - Complete results will be posted that night on active.com and they will be sent to you via email. Awards will be given to overall and to age group winners in various age groups, but we will mail awards to winners. - Masks will not be required while running on the course but having a mask or buff handy is highly recommended should you be passed by another runner or are passing another runner. Masks / face coverings will be required while you are waiting to start. - Please be sure to wash and sanitize your hands frequently. Sanitizer will be available in various areas around the venue. - We strongly encourage you to plan for your own hydration needs, especially on the course. You will have the opportunity to grab a bottle of water at the half way mark and get one bottle of water at the finish line. - ALL participants (including those in strollers) must sign an online COVID-19 waiver before race weekend. It will be sent to you this week. If we do not have a signed waiver, you cannot participate, and your race number will be pulled. Each person must sign their own waiver (or a parent/guardian if participant is under 18). - If you have a fever, cough, sore throat, or any other symptom of COVID-19 or other illness, please stay home. Contact event director if you have any questions. Complete CDC guidelines can be found HERE. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE IN THE 800PM WAVE, YOU WILL NEED A HEADLAMP OR FLASHLIGHT JUST TO BE SAFE. If you emailed us with a preferred wave, we put you in the wave. If you had not, we assigned you a wave based on availability.
