FAQs & Social Distance Protocols

Can a friend pick up my packet?

Yes! They will just need to know your bib number.

Where can I find my bib number?

Your bib number will be given to you the week prior to the race. You can find it by logging into your event in your registration profile.

Is there somewhere I can leave my stuff during the race?

Yes! We offer free gear check to all participants. Gear check typically opens an hour to 1.5 hours before the race begins.

Are strollers allowed on the course?

Yes, we just ask that you be mindful of other runners and walkers along the course.

Am I allowed to run with my child during the kids run?

Yes, you may run with your kiddo, there will also be a leader directing them during the kids run.

What are your social distance plans for 2021?

The Relays are on for 2021 events held in accordance with support from the Governor of Oregon and Oregon Health Authority with clear and enforceable protocols. Our top priority is preserving participant and volunteer safety as we proactively announce the following to ensure a safe and inspiring 2021 race season:

  • Participants are required to carry face-coverings and utilize them within six-feet of other participants, while running or walking their assigned legs.
  • Require use of face covering (HTC Race Series will provide if participant does not bring) for team members on the race course not actively running/walking their assigned legs (Start, Exchanges, Finish) if outside of the team vehicle.
  • Start waves of 12 participants max AND start wave distancing (start waves spread over a longer duration).
  • Contactless Team Check-In via HTC App.
  • Increased portable toilets, hand-washing stations and sanitizers.
  • Clear, inclusively designed signage, ensuring proper social-distancing at Start, Exchanges, Finish.
  • One time only minimal Finish Area, excluding event beach dining, beer/wine garden and entertainment (back for 2022). 
  • All race officials/volunteers will be provided with a complimentary new reflective vest and mask to wear at all times during shift, as well as special social distance training.

Additional Q&A can be found here. Relay events are innately socially distanced, as only one member of a relay team participates at any given time.                                          

During the HTC Windy River Relay and HTC Seabrook Relays, no more than 125 participants will be on the race course at any given time. Dispersed over 75 miles, this means one participant every 3,168 feet. Of course, varying paces and teams at race exchanges allow for greater or lesser social distancing, therefore, race organizers will strictly enforce protocols. 

New rules will be enforced and HTC Race Series officials will penalize teams and individuals not adhering to guidelines which may include race suspensions and/or bans if necessitated.
