Manchester Road Race Safety Update
(Scroll to see complete message)
The Manchester Road Race Committee, in consultation with the Town of Manchester, continues to plan for an exciting on-site road race on Thanksgiving Day at 10 a.m.
The health and safety of all our runners, volunteers and spectators remains our foremost concern! In order to make our return to Main Street as safe as it can possibly be, the Committee strongly urges that everyone participating in the race (including athletes, volunteers and fans) be fully vaccinated.
Additionally, we have mandated that all of our elite runners, many of whom are coming here from out of state, provide proof of full vaccination.
Currently, the Town of Manchester requires that facial coverings be worn at all indoor events. The MRR will comply fully with that mandate. Masks must be worn at all of the MRR’s indoor events, and on the shuttle buses transporting runners and spectators to the race on Thanksgiving morning.
Because masks cannot be worn while eating, and due to the health concerns about holding indoor events in confined or crowded places, the MRR has canceled its pre-race Spaghetti Supper and Charlie Robbins Luncheon this year.
Additionally, although not legally required outdoors, we are urging everyone --- runners, volunteers, and spectators --- to exercise sound judgment and respect for others by wearing facial coverings and following social distancing protocols as much as possible at the road race and its associated events.
The Manchester Road Race is a wonderful holiday tradition. You can help us to keep it a safe, healthy and fun event for everyone and by being fully vaccinated, and by cooperating with these suggestions.
