As you might imagine, The Team has spent a lot of time this week thinking about the Corona Virus (Covad-19). As always, the safety of our runners, staff, volunteers, and spectators is our number one priority. At the same time, we’re happy to say that the NYC Health Department has advised events to carry on, as the risk to New Yorkers remains low. That said, the situation remains fluid, and in conjunction with our medical team, we are making some minor changes to the Spring Fling on Sunday.
• First and foremost, review best practices to maintain public health, as listed on the NYC Department of Health website. Never attend any event if you are feeling unwell.
• In order to mitigate risk, we are replacing bagels and fruit with prepackaged foods (we hate this as much as you do, but believe it is the best decision).
• We will be expanding the hydration stations so that cups do not have to be densely packed together. Please try to avoid touching any cups you don’t use.
• We suggest you pick-up at Paragon on Friday to avoid crowding at race day pickup. Friday 3/6 from 12 – 6 PM at Paragon Sports (867 Broadway) in Manhattan. Take the 456LNQRW to Union Square. You may pick up for friends and family with their permission.
That said, we are looking forward to a great Spring Fling Sunday and to seeing you Win Your Race!
