HEALTH & SAFETY
The health and safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff is the most important aspect of our events. Our team at Millennium Running helped spearhead the implementation of guidelines published by Governor Sununu’s Task Force for road races in the State of NH. Millennium Running will continue to ensure all safety procedures at our events are followed to protect our running community. The Happy Hour Hustle 5k’s are limited to 250 participants each week.
MASK / FACE COVERING REQUIREMENTS
In accordance with NH Governor Sununu’s Emergency Order 63 Pursuant Executive Order 2020-04 and Extend by Order 2020-05 to 2020-16, face coverings will be required for this event during the following circumstances or when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
- Check-in / Registration Area
- Starting Zone
- Post Race Area
Face coverings are NOT REQUIRED while participating (running or walking on the course) and warming up or cooling down when physical distancing can be maintained.
Under these unique circumstances, all events will utilize “physical distancing” starts in which participants will be seeded based off their self-submitted paces. Athletes will start one-by-one in a time-trial format, 5 seconds after one another. You will be sorted and lined up in six foot increments in bib number order. It will take less than 12 minutes for all runners to cross the start line.
All spectators are required to abide by social distancing guidelines and avoid congregating at the start/finish line areas.
There will not be any aid stations or water provided on the course. If you know you will need water while you are on the course please be sure to bring it with you.
Two port-o-johns will be available on-site, participants are strongly encouraged to arrive prepared and self-sufficient. Please utilize the hand sanitizer provided inside and outside of the unit.
POST RACE REFRESHMENTS
Dasani bottled water provided by Coca Cola Northeast will be available at the finish line.
All results will be displayed live at the Millennium Running vehicle adjacent to the finish line. Live online results will be published exclusively on MillenniumRunning.com and all finishers will receive a results email. NOTE: Due to the time-trial starts, all results will be nettime only.
If you opt into receiving text results, you will get a text with your finisher time and a link to the full results page.

ELLIOT MILLENNIUM RUNNING SERIES COMPLETION
Each Happy Hour Hustle 5k finish counts 3.1 miles toward an individual’s mileage completion of the Elliot Millennium Running Series.
HAPPY HOUR HUSTLE POINTS CHASE
Each Happy Hour Hustle 5k will be scored by the same points systems we use for our Delta Dental Points Chase. Winners will receive 1000 points and each person that finishes the event receives a percentage of the maximum points determined by how far behind the winner they finish (net time). We will publish the standings at the conclusion of the series into the Delta Dental Points Chase. The more events you run, the faster you run, the more points you accumulate throughout the series!
