Hi Everyone,

So far, so good, it looks as though Sunday’s race will be going ahead! Some of Santa’s elves, who will remain nameless but we know who you are, might have arrived early and helped clear some snow away from the trails before today’s rain 😉 Thank you Seb for the trail condition updates and trail care.

Please find your Racer Event Timings and Order sheet in your email. For your convenience, I have attached the Bib numbers, People on Site, and race routes, again. Remember, that you should arrive no more than 15 minutes before the start of your class. There will be no changes on race day other than withdrawal or addition of dog names.

We will be doing the Race Meeting virtually, Ian Cranstone is your Race Marshall on race day, and we will be sending you a Race Meeting email on Saturday instead of holding a meeting in person. You are required to read the Race Meeting Notes to ensure that we have a safe race. There will be a silly question from those notes that the parking attendant will ask each racer on arrival. You will not be permitted on site until you can prove you have read the race meeting notes.

The parking attendant will have a list of people who are permitted in the race area.

Everyone, other than racers, who may be closer than 6 feet is expected to wear a mask, for the start in particular, since communications are necessarily loud (and maybe moist, as Justin Trudeau would say). Racers are asked to do their best to stay 6 feet apart when passing, and to make passes as quickly as possible. Please take special care with our more at risk members while anywhere on-site.

Bring your own bib. There is a PDF file attached within in the email with bib numbers. Please print your number and attach to yourself, or your equipment, on the day of the race. If you don’t have a bib, it’s your responsibility to ensure that the finish timer knows your number when you cross the line.

After the class is run, we will have a brief award meeting, and then you will be asked to leave unless you are in the next class. Feel free to stay and chat outside the event area, but continue to maintain social distance and/or masks. Our comfort level with holding future COVID events depends on how safe we thought this one was.

There is a kitchen with drinks and pre-packaged snacks on site (cash only). Please wear a mask when close to the kitchen tent and bring exact change. You will put your payment in a container that no one will touch, so no change will be given. You may order pizza by Saturday at noon; paid for electronically in advance. It must be a whole pizza, so we can give you the unopened box. We will discuss pricing depending on the pizza ordered. Contact dryland2@MushLarose.ca for details.
