WHAT RULES AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DO YOU RECCOMEND?

Virtual Safety Tips

  • Please be aware of your surroundings, use running trails or sidewalks if possible, use crosswalks when crossing roads, and obey traffic laws as you are not participating on a closed course.
  • Carry your ID with you in case of emergency.
  • Notify someone of the vicinity of where you will complete the virtual Monumental Mile as well as when you start and finish.
  • Check the weather for the time you plan on completing your virtual mile. You have October 1 – 31 to finish your virtual run- reschedule if weather conditions are unsafe.
  • Wear bright or reflective clothing in low-visibility situations.
  • Use common sense and listen to your body. Do not attempt to complete your race that day if you’re feeling ill or experience an injury.
  • Thoroughly wash your hands upon returning home.
  • If listening to music, manage the volume at a level that allows you the ability to hear oncoming traffic and other hazards – consider participating with one ear bud in to increase awareness of your surroundings.
  • If you’re experiencing an emergency during your virtual mile, call 911.
  • In addition, follow guidance from government officials on social distancing and the CDC’s recommended steps to protecting yourself and others during a COVID-19 outbreak.
