Healthy Human Race COVID-19 Prep Plan



We now have the corral assignments edit on Race Roster. All participants MUST sign up for a corral. Corrals can accommodate up to 25 participants and will be 10 minutes apart to permit adequate spacing on the course and at the aid stations. Please do this no later than August 15. Anyone not entered into a corral after that date will be placed into a corral where room exists.

Please do this ASAP and get the corral time you prefer.

To submit your option please follow these steps:  

  1. Sign into your Race Roster account here 
  2. Click “Edit registration” in the right corner of the screen 
  3. Choose from the options under the Corral Assignment product
  4. Click ‘save & exit’

Thank you. We look forward to seeing you on August 22nd!!



Trust this finds you all doing well and continuing into the best season of the year for running. I apologize for being delayed in getting the race photos to you. I left for Romania right after the race to coach the US 50K Ultramarathon Team at the 2019 world championships and just returned last night.

A very special thanks to Thom Woo, Wyatt Ryan, and Fred Sobottka for the time and talent in taking photos of the race at the finish line and along the course.
