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.

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.

This event will utilize “time trial start” format that will facilitate “social distancing” for the entirety of the event. Participants will be seeded based off their self-submitted paces in their selected wave. Each wave will have a maximum of 396 runners. Participants in each wave will be sorted by pace from fastest to slowest. Two people will start every 10 seconds over a 30 minute period. This will allow for social and physical distancing but also allow for families and friends to start and finish over a shorter period of time.

Participants will be assigned a dedicated start time along with specific times for parking, check-in time and report to corral time.
