We at NTTR understand that 2020 has been a challenging time for many; especially related to the direct and indirect impact of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. First and foremost, on our minds is the health and safety of our friends, family, and communities. We cancelled or postponed all in-person events (group runs, races, etc.) at the beginning of the outbreak and have continued to follow the latest information as many of you have been doing. Our hearts and prayers extend to all our trail family and we encourage each individual and family to adopt a risk posture appropriate for their situation.
We also understand that exercising, good sleep, healthy eating, and reducing stress are the most important elements to being healthy and maintaining a healthy immune system and we are blessed enough to be passionate about a sport that largely takes place in outdoor, open spaces. As of Oct 1st, we will start to offer select events again for those who want the opportunity to participate in our trail community but we will have in place minimum guidelines as provided by national, state, and local authorities to help prevent the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
These guidelines will be enforced at our events and you may personally exercise additional measures that you feel are necessary. We will not tolerate disparaging remarks towards anyone at our events for practicing measures they feel are important to their health. Guidelines subject to change based on current situation and ongoing updates from authorities.
Individual Participant Guidelines:
1) Breaking cycle of exposure/infection:
a. Stay home if you are sick
b. Practice social distancing (maintain a distance of 6 ft.)
c. Use masks when social distancing is not practical/possible (masks not appropriate for anyone under 2 years old, has trouble breathing, or cannot remove mask unassisted)
2) Good hygiene practices:
