COVID-19 Safety Measures

George Washington’s Mount Vernon is currently planning to produce an event that looks as much as possible as it did before the pandemic, however:

There is the possibility that some restrictions on the format of the race, especially the start, may still be necessary to allow social distancing.

If requirements on the format of the start mandate the use of waves for social distancing, we may be forced to limit the size of the field to fewer than the number who have previously registered.

If this happens:

  • We will use the participant's registration date to determine eligibility.
  • Those who are not able to participate due to COVID-19 restrictions on the number of participants allowed will receive a full refund.

Based on other mass gathering restrictions in place in September, participants may be required to wear face coverings, observe social distancing, and follow additional public health guidelines as outlined by the Governor of Virginia and the CDC.

Specific guidance will be provided to participants closer to the event.
