Running Etiquette: Social Distancing
Please practice social distancing when completing your virtual run. Running solo is the way to go! If your prefer running with others, we suggest running with just one other individual. Remember to remain at least 6 feet apart from each other.
Additionally, don't forget your face covering. Especially if you are completing your run during popular running hours, you want to make sure your mouth and nose is covered. If you are someone who has difficulty running with a face covering, try to beat the crowds!
