NEW Social Distancing Guidelines

The Jason Baker Foundation, Inc. and Crown Hill Cemetery are excited to host the Beyond the Badge 5k Run/Walk & 1.5-mile Family Stroll, but want to make sure every participant, volunteer, spectator and staff member feels comfortable and safe. With this in mind, we will be implementing several social distancing guidelines for the event.

1) Crowd management at Packet Pickup, with markings for 6' spacing
2) Masks are mandatory until you have begun competing, and need to be put back on once you cross the finish line. Use the trash bin at the start arch to throw away disposable masks, but please have another mask to use after you finish.
3) Participants will begin the race in smaller waves
4) Volunteers will be required to wear masks, and volunteers handling any race items are required to wear gloves
5) Hand sanitizer stations will be available on-site, as well as port-o-lets
6) Pre/Post-race announcements will be made to enforce social distancing

Per the Marion County Health Department:
- Stay home if you are sick, or are exhibiting any of the following symptoms; cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, muscle pain or sore throat.
- Based on currently available information and clinical expertise, older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions (heart disease, chronic lung disease, asthma, etc.) might be at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19, and should not attend the Event.
- An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present.
- COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death
