Upcoming Jefferson City Roadrunners Race Series Events

Race pandemic concerns:


  1. Please refrain from participation if you are experiencing any symptoms associated with Covid-19, if you are not feeling well, or are in any way concerned about contracting Covid-19.
  2. Make all attempts to maintain 6 feet separation while waiting for the race to start.
  3. No registration race morning (this is because of trying to track results with a large starting line window precludes last minute entries into the timing program).
  4. Masks will not be provided. You will need to bring your own if you plan to use one.


Actual race:

  1. This course is chip timed; therefore, as long as you cross the mats between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m., your time will be used to determine age group winners. NOTE: stay clear of timing mats prior to actually starting the race (if the mat picks up your chip signature, your recorded overall time could be significantly longer than actual).
  2. You must also cross the timing mats when you finish the 5K for the time to be recorded by the timing software. This software captures your overall time.
  3. There will be no mass start! Participants should stagger themselves to small pods of people when crossing the start line.
  4. Once you are actually running/walking the 5K, follow normal race protocol.
  5. Chip timing is not foolproof (for example see #5 above). It is recommended that you self-time your race as a backup.



  1. Minimize time spent at finish line and maintain social distancing; feel free to go home after the race.
  2. Awards will be mailed and results will be posted at
  3. Hand sanitizer will be available at starting/finish area.
  4. Snacks and water will be available. To minimize excessive handling, they will be out on tables for grab and go.
