RUN X RACE DAY FLOW – SELECT DETAILS

I. Arriving On Venue At Exhibition Place (Bandshell Park)

 

  • Approximately 1 week before the event, you will receive an email providing an arrival time likely 25 to 30 minutes before the specific wave time you choose during the registration process.
     

  • This is when you should arrive on venue. At this specific time, you will be allowed into the designated staging area for Run X.
     

  • Please remember to have your race bib on.
     

  • If you arrive prior to this provided time, please stay in an area where you can safely maintain physical distance or, if applicable, in your vehicle. until it is time to move in to the staging area.
     

  • (Athletes will have picked up their race bibs from The Runners Shop during race week. This community store, in the Annex neighbourhood, is centrally located - 374 Bloor Street West - to facilitate a convenient race bib pickup process. More details to come as the event gets closer.)


II. Admittance to the Staging Area

 

  • The staging area will be for participants only. Only athletes with race bibs will be permitted into this area.
     

  • There will only be approximately 75 athletes per wave, so there will be an abundance of room to stay physically distanced.
     

  • We will have music to keep you company before your wave starts – this should help you get into the zone!
     

  • There will be washrooms in the staging area.
     

  • Please note that there will be no baggage check at this event.
     

  • Current Public Health guidelines require masks be worn and physical distancing maintained in the staging area. We will review these requirements closer to race day.
     

III. Athletes Escorted to Start Area
 

  • A race official, supported through clear communications from our race announcer, will guide athletes to the start line (from the staging area) to begin your race.
     

  • Please listen carefully to the instructions provided by the Run X team on race day to ensure everyone remains safe and is able to enjoy themselves.
     

  • Indeed running together again is a moment to celebrate but please remember that others may have different levels of comfort than you in the current environment.
     

IV. Race Wave, Time Trial Start
 

  • Run X will feature a time trial start with multiple waves over the course of the entire race day.
     

  • Officials and announcers will ensure that this process is well communicated and staged efficiently, so there is no need to worry if you’ve never participated in an event featuring a time trial start. It is simple and straight forward.
     

  • There will be water in the start area but you are encouraged to bring your own hydration if that makes you more comfortable.
     

V. The Finish Line
 

  • Once you cross the finish line, please keep moving even as you celebrate your achievement.
     

  • Post race, you will receive a finisher’s bag that will include water, snacks as well as your Run X branded face mask and Run X branded medal.
     

  • If you require it, a medical team will be on hand to provide any support you might need.
     

  • Please continue through the finish chute and avoid gathering in and around the finish area.
     

VI. Post Race
 

  • Unfortunately Run X is not permitted to offer any post race activities this year.
     

  • We look forward to adding beer gardens and similar fun and interactive offerings in the future. 

a special thank you to our 2021 sponsors...
