If participants are more comfortable with a virtual race, there is still that option.  But safety is still the most important thing.

We’ve partnered with experts and officials to build an event that’s COVID-safe from before the start to beyond the finish. And, we’ll monitor the public health situation through race-day to organize an event that’s appropriate for the moment.

There are several events surrounding the weekend.  they include the actual marathon, obviously, there's a 5K, a 10K, a ten mile run, and also some family events.  Those include some training for the family and activities whether you are in diapers, or the eldest member of the family.  Something for everyone and some family friendly gear available too!  The family events are scheduled for Saturday, October 2nd.

If you want to keep track of everything going on leading up to marathon weekend, and throughout the weekend, make sure to get the TCM app.

Whatever way you plan to participate, even as a spectator, it's good to see things moving in a more positive direction.
