The Colon Cancer Coalition puts the safety and well-being of all participants first. All events held and organized by the Colon Cancer Coalition follow CDC guidance in conjunction with the guidance of the local communities/governments in which the events take place. 

All events held and organized on by the Colon Cancer Coalition will:

  • Offer a virtual participation option.
  • Have a supply of sanitizer and face masks readily available onsite.
  • When gathering, encourage participants to wear face masks to protect themselves and others, especially immunocompromised attendees.
  • Encourage social distancing when possible.
  • Endeavor to host events and subsequent event areas (ex: registration, survivor tent) fully outdoors when possible.
  • Conduct routine sanitization of high-traffic areas and/or surfaces.
  • Encourage participants to self monitor for the signs and symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • Despite these measures, Colon Cancer Coalition cannot guarantee that participants, volunteers, partners, and individuals in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.

When warranted by local community COVID-19 guidelines, additional measures may be put in place at Colon Cancer Coalition events such as:

  • Staggered start/finish waves for participants to mitigate crowding.
  • Rearrangement of event set-up to maximize social distancing.
  • Hosting virtual, shortened, or eliminating opening or awards ceremonies to reduce gathering.
  • Adjust food and beverage offerings that eliminate common-touch practices.
  • Offer hybrid or drive-up packet pick-up opportunities for race apparel.
  • All participants at Colon Cancer Coalition events agree to the Event Waiver and Release of Liability, found here.
  • Additionally, in light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, participants who fall into the groups below should avoid participating physically in person at Colon Cancer Coalition events. When attending an event, participants participating physically confirm that they are not part of the one of the following groups:
    • Individuals who currently, or within the past 14 days, have experienced any symptoms associated with COVID-19. These symptoms can include fever, cough, shortness of breath or any of the other symptoms identified by the CDC
    • Individuals who believe they may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19.
