Gwynn’s Island Festival Road Race

The 2020 Gwynn’s Island Race was held ON 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.

Individual start times were set and communicated to all participants on Mon, June 22nd. Participants simply showed up at your designated appointment time, checked in with the timer, and ran the course (which will be clearly marked).

Jun 2020: Due to the restrictions on public gatherings**, 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).**Eff 6/5/2020 Virginia transitioned to Phase 2 for COVID-19 guidelines on group sizes (up to 50 at a time).
