Gwynn’s Island Festival Road Race

The 2020 Gwynn’s Island Race is ON for June 27 – under a new, social distance racing format. Outdoor exercise is encouraged — providing that we all adhere to the group size limitations and social distancing. Earlier in the year, we tested out a new format to conform to the safety recommendations – and it was a success.

This just in — May 2020: our Social Distance Racing trial run on May 9th was a success. We had staggered start times, and allowed online pre-registration only – read about the safety measures we used for this event and send along any questions to vttrunners@gmail.com. A new way to race in 2020!

Click here to register for the 2020 Gwynn’s Island “By Appt” 4 Miler Race which is scheduled for Saturday, June 27th for only $12.50.

Due to the restrictions on public gatherings of > 10 people, the Gwynn’s Island “By Appointment” 4 Miler will include some extra precautions for the safety of participants and event organizers. This includes using staggered start times and having participants provide their own water stations (at your vehicle or along the course) — and eliminating race day registration (online only).

Registration closes on Sunday June 21 — individual start times will be set and communicated to all participants on Mon, June 22nd. Simply show up at your designated appointment time, check in with the timer, and run the course (which will be clearly marked). LIVE results will be available throughout the day so you can monitor your standings. Definitely check out Event news/ postings on Facebook.
