All of our Mountain Junkies LLC events are still being held. We are trying to stay current in this ever changing environment related to the virus.
Here are details about minimizing risks on the CDC website – please keep yourself current on what is recommended and abide by the recommendations.
Currently, the Virginia as well as our local Department of Health have not recommended canceling events. The vast majority of our runners are not in a high risk group and, other than the start and following the race, will not be in close contact of each other.
We ask, those who may be traveling from a high risk area, to not attend the event as well as those with any general symptoms such as a cough and/or fever (including spectators). For those attending, please bring your own hand sanitizer, wipes, and/or utilize other infection-control measures as best you can.
We will continue to make decisions that rely heavily on the guidance we are receiving from the CDC, the Virginia and local Departments of Health, and similar sporting governance and are intended to keep public health at the forefront of our concerns. Please remember that this is an emerging and rapidly evolving situation and that it may create uncertainty. Hence, our guidance and position is subject to change and if our position does change, we will reach out to our race registrants by email.
