Honoring Tuscarora Runners to Washington, DC in 1934
40th Tuscarora 10K & 2.5 Mile Fun Run



Please join us on Saturday July 11, 2020 for the Tuscarora 10K and 2.5 Mile Fun Run! The race is normally held in conjunction with the annual Tuscarora Nation Picnic and Field Days, however this year the picnic and field days have been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Proceeds from the event will be used to make much needed improvements to the picnic grove area!

START/FINISH
All participants of the 10K run will be asked to enter their expected finish time during the registration process. Race organizers will use this information to setup a series of wave starts that allow for proper social distancing at the starting line and on the course. If you do not enter a projected finish time it's OK! We will simply place you in one of the waves at our discretion. Waves for both the 10K Run and the 2.5 Mile run will start at 9:00 sharp on the corner of Walmore and Mount Hope Road in front of Tuscarora Elementary School. We are expecting a larger than normal crowd this year and are not responsible if you arrive late and are not able to pickup your race materials in time.

REGISTRATION & PACKET PICKUP
This year we will be setting runners off in smaller waves to allow for proper social distancing. Waves will be determined based on the expected finish time you enter during the registration process and will be organized to allow faster runners to in earlier waves to minimize congestion and allow for social distancing on the course. Online registration will remain open until Friday July 10, 2020 at 5:00pm or at any point prior to that date if race organizers feel they have reached an acceptable capacity. Please note that for the safety of participants and staff, THERE WILL BE NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! Official Tuscarora 10K t-shirts guaranteed to all participants who register by July 5th at midnight. There will be no extra shirts ordered beyond this deadline so be sure to register early!

POST RACE CELEBRATION
Due to Covid-19 and social distancing guidelines, there will be no post race celebration following the race. Participants will be provided with ice cold bottled water upon completion of the race and will be guided to the shade of the picnic grove where they can stay socially distant from other persons and recover for a short period of time. Participants will then be asked to make their way to the main grass parking lot where they will exit the event. For those of you who are interested in meeting up with friends after the race there are a number of great local and state parks just a short drive away including Bond's Lake just north of the Reservation via Black Nose Spring Road. Under no circumstances will participants be allowed to congregate at or near the finish line following the race and those who choose to ignore this important safety precaution may be banned from this and other races in the future.

PARKING
All participants will be required to park in the large grass field located just to the north of Tuscarora School on Walmore Road. Volunteers (Tuscarora Uncles) will guide you to the parking area (see map below). Race packets (bib w/ RFID tag, wave information, and t-shirt if you registered before the deadline) will be safely distributed to you while you are seated in your car. You will then be guided to your parking spot for the morning. You must follow these guidelines in order to participate. You cannot park outside of the designated area and walk over to pickup your race packet. Please do not park on the shoulder of the road to allow for traffic.
