COVID19 Changes

We are super excited about hosting the 24-Hour Run For Dreams in 2020 – more so than ever!
However, due to the COVID-19 situation, following are the guidelines for the 2020 event only. These
precautions were put into place based on recommendations from local officials and also the
Shelbyville Parks/Red Orchard Park. If you have any questions related to any of these, please contact
Tommie Kendall by email at The event is at Red Orchard Park
in Shelbyville, KY on Aug. 1-2.
 We were excited to partner with a local cross-country team in 2019 and had plans to include
more in 2020, but this year there will be no teams onsite.
 We eliminated the relays.
 We eliminated two new events we were offering for the first time: 3-hour and 6-hour divisions.
We plan to add these events in 2021.
 The only events offered in 2020 will be the 24-hour individual, the 12-hour individual day run
(8 AM to 8 PM) and the 12-hour individual night run (8 PM to 8 AM).
 When you sign up for the 12-hour, you must designate day run or night run.
 We are limiting the 24-hour to 30 participants, and 20 participants for the 12-hour day run
and 20 participants for the 12-hour night run. When these slots are filled then registration
will be closed.
 Regardless, there will be no day-off registration. Online registration at Ultra Signup will be
available until all the slots are sold out or until July 28, whichever comes first.
 No pacers are allowed on the course this year. The course remains the two-mile loop within
the park and we’ll use a smaller loop during the last hour.
 This is a self-supported event this year! Bring your own food and drinks. We will only have
water for participants – the details for this will be worked out prior to the event.
 Each participant will have a designated spot at the start/finish area. If you have anyone at the
event with you, they should remain in your specific area.
