Health and Safety Guidelines
Updated Health and Safety Guidelines – Monday, January 10, 2022
The California Department of Public Health (CPDH) recently updated the guidance for mega-events, effective January 15, 2022. Please read on for our updated Health and Safety Guidelines.
Please note: There is an inherent risk when attending large events where the vaccine status of others in attendance may be unknown to the individuals. We have implemented the following Health & Safety guidelines for the 2022 Carlsbad Marathon weekend of events:
- Stay home if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, fever, muscle or body aches, headache, the new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.
- Per the current CDPH guidelines, masks are REQUIRED indoors and recommended outdoors. We strongly recommend masks be worn at all times when not racing.
- While we are not requiring it, the State strongly recommends that anyone attending an event be fully vaccinated or obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending.
- Sign up for CA Notify as an added layer of protection for yourself and the community.
- Participants looking for additional room for social distancing may stage at the end of the staging area at the start line.
- We request that you limit the number of spectators you invite and that you instruct them to wear a mask at all times.
If you feel more comfortable switching to a virtual participant, please fill out this form at least one day prior to your scheduled race, and we will make that change for you.
