About This Activity

Let's get back to it!

This is our SECOND official Taconic Race in our COVID protocol. It'll look a little different, but we're ready if you are!

This will be a different course than in past years to deal with some closures in the park and have the start and end of the race in the same place. There are some important things of which to be aware:

  • Start and bib pick up at Parking Lot 1, please enter from the Taconic entrance at FDR Park.
  • Online registration only - no race day signup
  • There is a limit of 200 runners total.
  • You must wear a mask at all times except when actually racing.
  • There will be wave starts to keep some distance.
  • You must stay on the left on the roadway, and maintain a 6' distance from everyone not involved in the race (walkers, dogs, etc.)
  • There won't be the usual Taconic spread - we'll have bottled water at the finish line.
  • There is an updated waiver to sign acknowledging the additional risk implicit in COVID racing.

There are some good details too!

  • Awesome Taconic neck gaiters will be given to all registrants.
  • We're lowering prices and eating the runsignup fee - the cost is $10 for members, $12 for non-members.
  • Pies as prizes to men and women 1st, 2nd and 3rd places.
  • We won't have age group awards, but we'll list age group winners on the results (bragging rights!)

So sign up now! We'll get back to you with your wave start time the day before the race. The first gun is at 10am.
