WHAT RULES AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DO YOU RECCOMEND?

Virtual Safety Tips

  • Please be aware of your surroundings, use running trails or sidewalks if possible, use crosswalks when crossing roads, and obey traffic laws as you are not participating on a closed course.
  • Carry your ID with you in case of emergency.
  • Notify someone of the vicinity of where you will complete the virtual Monumental Mile as well as when you start and finish.
  • Check the weather for the time you plan on completing your virtual mile. You have from June 22 – June 30 to finish your virtual mile- reschedule if weather conditions are unsafe.
  • Wear bright or reflective clothing in low-visibility situations.
  • Use common sense and listen to your body. Do not attempt to complete your race that day if you’re feeling ill or experience an injury.
  • Thoroughly wash your hands upon returning home.
  • If listening to music, manage the volume at a level that allows you the ability to hear oncoming traffic and other hazards – consider participating with one ear bud in to increase awareness of your surroundings.
  • If you’re experiencing an emergency during your virtual mile, call 911.

In addition, follow guidance from government officials on social distancing and the CDC’s recommended steps to protecting yourself and others during a COVID-19 outbreak.

Beyond Monumental is not responsible for your safety while running virtually. We suggest that all runners follow recommendations as provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
