Information is changing daily with the current pandemic around COVID-19. We have gone from groups of 250, to groups of 50, to social distancing, to physical distancing, to stay home and only recreate with family members... all within a week.
We want to strongly encourage everyone to consider the following when planning their workouts, whether they are PACE recommended or individual, moving forward:
1. Run solo or with those members of your immediate family only. Recommendations have changed as of Saturday and contact with anyone outside of your house is only if necessary, at which time you're to stay 6 feet away. This no longer means running with a buddy and "social distancing".
2. The trails are seeing an influx of traffic, which is awesome as it shows families are choosing fresh air and nature as a way to cope and support mental health. If possible, try to train outside of peak times.
3. As you train more on your own be sure to familiarize yourself with KNOW BEFORE YOU GO trip planning
4. If you are on the trail and see others,
Our local parks, trails and open spaces have always served as places where people can find respite and seek peace and restoration. During this time of uncertainty, these places are needed now more than ever. While there are lots of things we can't control right now, how we choose to move outdoors is something we can.
Thank you for your cooperation and leading by example so we can all contribute to setting a new standard within our community. Together, we are helping keep one another and our community healthy and safe.
