COVID-19 Illness Statement:

Due to the persistence of Covid 19 in our area, and out of gratitude for our health and our respect for our health care providers, WCTE Haunted Half marathon will be following these disease precautions:

Runners and volunteers:  We ask that you please stay home and rest and isolate if you are having any symptoms of active illness on race day or if you have a known high risk exposure to Covid 19 in the week prior to our race.  Runners that become exposed or ill prior to race day and cannot safely run with us are encouraged to switch to our virtual option.

- Masks are required at all times when inside a building at TTU - this includes their restrooms and University Center lobby.  This is university policy. 

- Runners are asked to not congregate inside the University Center before the race start - please remain outside and allow respectful distancing between you and other runners.

- Masks are encouraged at the race start line, and race start times will be staggered, with faster runners starting first.  Instructions will be given on race morning - it won’t be complicated!

- After you finish your awesome run, we ask that you continue moving across the finish line and through the finish line chute.  You will receive your race medal as you finish, and post race food and drinks will be available as usual.   The tables will be spaced further apart and we ask that you keep moving and not congregate at the food tables.

- We want you to enjoy the post race atmosphere and share your race stories with your fellow runners and friends, but we ask that you remain aware of social distancing and stay spread apart.

We will announce overall male and female winners, masters and grandmasters winners, and relay team winners beginning at 9:15 am.  Age group awards can be claimed by presenting yourself (and your race time and place printout) to the awards table in the finish area.   Age group winners will not be announced. 

Water station volunteers are encouraged to wear masks and gloves, and they will take extra precautions to limit contact with the cups.   There will be water available at mile 2, then water and gatorade at miles 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12.
