○ Take necessary precautions to limit you and your staff’s exposure.
■ Set up early and tear down later.
■ Wipe down all touch points with approved disinfectant.
○ Provide PPE for your staff
▷ Consider Providing No Touch Services and Limit Exposure
○ Remove any touch points that are unnecessary.
■ No result kiosks or printed pages: point athletes to the results website or RaceJoy.
■ Offer self managed water, foot pedals, etc.
○ Offer RaceJoy’s GPS timing and support and communicate remotely.

Different Start Line Options:
Planning for On-site Events
20
▷ Supporting Social Distancing at Start Line Tactics
○ Add multiple course options (same distances, different
locations).
○ Increase the dates for the event to spread out
participants.
○ Set up staggered starts, corral times, etc.
▷ Determine Event Start Logistics:
○ Single day or multi-day event?
○ Is the event on closed roads that MUST be open by a
certain time?
○ Plan for enough equipment/power/staff to man multiple
splits.
Different Start Line Options
21
▷ Mass Start
○ Everyone starts at once.
■ Pro: It feels like Pre-COVID, everyone is through the start line quickly.
■ Con: COVID-19!!!! NOT A GOOD IDEA RIGHT NOW!!!
▷ Limited Wave Start (Corrals)
○ Ex: 10 athletes every 2 minutes.
■ Pro: Athletes feel like they’re racing each other, even if it’s in groups of 10.
■ Con: Still groups of 10 and may be confusing who is in what wave/corral.
▷ Time Trial Start
○ Ex: 1 athlete every 10 seconds
■ Pro: Athletes spread out and less contact
■ Con: Start can take longer, some athletes don’t like TT starts because it’s less of a race
against others and more of a race against the clock.
Different Start Line Options
22
▷ Grid Start (can be done in conjunction with wave starts)
○ Everyone starts at once or most start at once.
■ Pro: Everyone starts 6’ apart, everyone is through the start line fairly quickly
■ Con: You must time off of chip time and a bit more setup with cones/chalk/tape
▷ Open Start/Finish
○ Ex: 2 hour window for people to start and finish
■ Pro: Athletes can start when they feel comfortable
■ Con: There still could be running groups/friends who choose to run together
▷ Multi-Day Event - Open Start Finish
○ Ex: 9AM - 5PM
■ Pro: PLENTY of time for athletes to spread themselves out
■ Con: It’s multi-day event, you’re going to be out there for a LONG time

  • 21. Different Start Line Options 21 ▷ Mass Start ○ Everyone starts at once. ■ Pro: It feels like Pre-COVID, everyone is through the start line quickly. ■ Con: COVID-19!!!! NOT A GOOD IDEA RIGHT NOW!!! ▷ Limited Wave Start (Corrals) ○ Ex: 10 athletes every 2 minutes. ■ Pro: Athletes feel like they’re racing each other, even if it’s in groups of 10. ■ Con: Still groups of 10 and may be confusing who is in what wave/corral. ▷ Time Trial Start ○ Ex: 1 athlete every 10 seconds ■ Pro: Athletes spread out and less contact ■ Con: Start can take longer, some athletes don’t like TT starts because it’s less of a race against others and more of a race against the clock.
  • 22. Different Start Line Options 22 ▷ Grid Start (can be done in conjunction with wave starts) ○ Everyone starts at once or most start at once. ■ Pro: Everyone starts 6’ apart, everyone is through the start line fairly quickly ■ Con: You must time off of chip time and a bit more setup with cones/chalk/tape ▷ Open Start/Finish ○ Ex: 2 hour window for people to start and finish ■ Pro: Athletes can start when they feel comfortable ■ Con: There still could be running groups/friends who choose to run together ▷ Multi-Day Event - Open Start Finish ○ Ex: 9AM - 5PM ■ Pro: PLENTY of time for athletes to spread themselves out ■ Con: It’s multi-day event, you’re going to be out there for a LONG time
