Social Distancing Guidelines

In an effort to reduce the spread of the Covid 19 Virus while complying with local and state requirements and CDC recommendations, Good Day for a Run races that are permitted to take place will be enforcing the following guidelines and practices until further notice.  We feel fortunate to be able to host races again, but we must all be responsible and do our part to ensure a healthy running and post race environment. Please read and comply! Thank You!

  • If you have an elevated temperature or flu like symptoms… STAY HOME. (You may run the Virtual Option).
  • Participant numbers will be reduced to meet the capacity limits for gatherings at each specific venue. (these numbers are subject to change)
  • Immediate family members (i.e. spouse, child, significant other) may accompany a runner as a guest, but large gatherings of non-registered runners are not permitted due to space limitations. 
  • Face masks must be worn on the Vineyard/Brewery property at all times unless running/walking in the race, sitting at your designated space,* or in your car. 
  • Guest Tables may not be used in any capacity prior to the race. These tables are to be used after race only. 1st come 1st serve.
  • Checking In/pre race:
    • If you are checking in for more than one person – only 1 person should check-in for the couple/group.
    • After checking in, we recommend hanging out in your car until approx. 15 minutes prior to race start. You may also stay in the designated gathering area practicing proper social distancing requirements.
    • There will be NO Bag Check until further notice.
    • Prior to race, head to the designated pre-race gathering area for race announcements.
    • Please do not use any customer tables before race and NO reserving tables until after you finish the race. Wineries have strict guidelines for table use and we must obey this requirement.
  • GDFAR will designate a pre race gathering area for all events for pre race announcements and coral staging. Please arrive at this location no later than 10 minutes prior to start of race.
  • Post race tables and predetermined spaces will be available with 6 foot of clearance between.  These tables and spaces should not be moved. No space should consist of more than 8 people. Everyone should remain seated when possible.
  • You are not permitted to mingle with other tables, as you are required to stay seated unless purchasing wine, food, using a restroom, or leaving the premises. Once a space is claimed, this should remain your spot until you are ready to leave. Sites will need to be sanitized before a new group can occupy. 
  • Water on the course and at Finish Line: GDFAR volunteer will wear gloves and will supply bottled water for participants at beginning and after the race. However, it is recommended that participants bring their own bottle. Water may not be distributed during the race until further notice, so please plan to carry your water during race and carry out.
  • GDFAR events are chip timed. We will implement a staggered start system keeping the participants more separated.  Depending on the size of the race and the start line, runners will be staggered in groups of approximately 25-50 people.
  • ALL AWARDS, including Overall, will be based on Chip Time until further notice. In the past, we based overall awards on Gun Time. 
  • Post race lawn games/activities will not be available until further notice. (i.e. Corn Hole, Frisbee, etc.)
  • Please keep gatherings to a minimum. Be courteous to other peoples space.
  • If you do not want to comply with the above rules, please choose the Virtual Run Option. You may contact beth@gooddayforarun.com to learn more about this option.
