Angry Owl 2021!

To the best of our knowledge, this race will happen in 2021. The City of Salem Parks Department reserves to pull the permits at any time, so we are at their mercy. Last year's event happened without issue and we anticipate that the same will be true this year.

COVID-19 protocols: We expect that all participants and crew are respectful of others' comfort levels. No masks are required for runners, but we hope that each participant will honor the wishes of others while within 6 feet of one another. Our entire course allows runners to pass others maintaining a 6 foot distance, except for one small trail behind the stadium.
Bottom line: It's okay to respectfully disagree with others on COVID, masks, distancing, etc., but don't be a jerk about it.

TIMING: Race will be chipped timed by the expert timers at Race Northwest.

AID STATION: We will have a single aid station near the Start/Finish area stocked with water, electrolyte drink, fruits, salty snacks, sweet snacks, and some other goodies. You are welcome to leave some of your own foods near the finish line for easy access as you're running. In order to reduce waste, we will not be providing any cups. Bring your own bottle(s) or cup(s). They can be kept at the aid station if you'd like.

RUNNERS SETTING UP CAMP: Our start/finish location is right next to a small parking lot, so your vehicle will be accessible during the race. Runners are welcome to bring their camp chairs and coolers to the event and set them up near the start/finish area as long as they are not impeding the runners or other park-goers. Do be aware that this is public park, and that event organizers and volunteers will not be watching your belongings or be liable for anything that is lost, broken, or stolen. Runners and crew may not camp at the park on Friday night before the race.

SPECTATORS: The park is open to the public during our event, and spectators are more than welcome to come out and support. Family and friends may join runners for a lap or two throughout the event, but please do not plan on running all day with your spectator.

PACERS: Please do not plan on using a pacer. A friend or family member may join you for your final lap, but no formal pacers are permitted.

WEATHER: Be prepared for hot weather, but this is the northwest so you ought to be prepared for cold and rainy weather as well.

LIGHTS: There's a 100% chance that it'll get dark at night. We'll light the aid station area, but runners are responsible for lighting up their run with a headlamp, handheld light, or both.
