  4. Hand sanitizer stations will be positioned at each “race area” (pool, cycling area, treadmill area) and participants will be encouraged to utilize them.
  5. Temperature checks will be performed at the entrance to BAAC for all indoor triathlon participants.

  3. CCR will limit packet pickup to two opportunities (see above)
  4. On race day, the lobby of the Bel Air Athletic Club will be organized with tables and stanchion designating the packet pickup area. A CCR employee will perform a forehead temperature check with an infrared thermometer to ensure anyone entering the club for the indoor triathlon is within the acceptable range. Participants will be permitted to walk up to the packet pickup tables, show their ID and race registration email (on mobile device) and receive their packet. Should a line form, CCR employees will remind waiting participants to remain 6ft from the person in front of them.

Post-Race Activities/Results

In years past, pizza and refreshments were offered to participants after completing the run. Unfortunately, gathering in groups indoors is not recommended and as such, there will be no post race activities this year.

Upon completing the event, participants will “mask up,” gather their belongings, and exit the club. Results will be posted online at the conclusion of the event, and awards can be picked up at the Bel Air Charm City Run store the beginning the following Monday


Spectators

In accordance with our Covid-19 race procedures, spectators will not be permitted inside Bel Air Athletic Club during the indoor triathlon. The only exception to this policy is parents/guardians of those under the age of 18, or those participants with special needs. Spectators who are permitted to enter the club must maintain proper social distancing and wear a face covering at all times. Anyone in violation of this policy will be warned, and then asked to leave if the situation is not rectified.


Overall and age group awards:

  • Top three male and female finishers overall
  • Top male and female finishers in the following age groups (19&under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60 and over)
  • Top Relay Overall


Inclement Weather Policy:

The 2021 Harford Multisport Club Indoor Triathlon is an indoor event, and the race will go on as planned unless extreme weather is present that forces us to cancel the event (example: snow storm that makes getting to the event unsafe). Unfortunately, race registration fees will not be refunded if this occurs. In the event that we are forced to cancel you will be notified via email.

Refund, Deferral, Transfer, and Cancellation Policies

REFUND, DEFERRAL, TRANSFER, AND CANCELLATION POLICIES

As we slowly return to racing in 2021, we want to be completely transparent with our policies regarding refunds, deferrals, and cancellations. If you are interested in signing up for this race please read this section carefully prior to registering. All interested participants will be shown these policies during the registration process and must agree to adhere to them in order to be admitted to the event.

REFUNDS

Race registration fees (and the processing charge from RunSignup) are not refundable. These funds are used to pay for race premiums, permits, supplies, staffing, and other costs incurred before, during, and after the event is held. To be consistent and fair to everyone we cannot make exceptions to this policy.

DEFERRALS

We offer the option for registrants to defer their entry to the following year's event up to two weeks prior to the race (March 6, 2021). After this deadline passes we are unable to allow deferrals as race materials have been received and prepped for the event. Again, to be consistent and fair to everyone we cannot make exceptions to this policy. Registrants may defer their entry by going into their profile on runsignup.com and choosing "Manage Registration" next to the race.

TRANSFERS

We offer the option for registrants to transfer their entry to another eligible participant up to two weeks prior to the race (March 6, 2021). After this deadline passes we are unable to allow transfers as race materials have been received and prepped for the event. Again, to be consistent and fair to everyone we cannot make exceptions to this policy. Registrants may transfer their entry to another registrant by going into their profile on runsignup.com and choosing "Manage Registration" next to the race.

CANCELLATION DUE TO COVID-19

2020 showed just how unpredictable our world can be, and the running/triathlon industry was certainly no exception. We know that it's important to have as much information at your disposal when making a decision whether to sign up for a race or not, and we want you to know exactly what will happen should the 2021 in-person race not be able to take place as originally planned. If we are forced to cancel the in-person race due to COVID-19 all registrants will be deferred to the 2022 event (you will not receive the 2021 race swag, but will be prompted to claim your entry and register for the 2022 event when registration opens).

Please note that our regular cancellation policy found here applies to other scenarios that could prompt the cancellation of an event including weather, local emergencies, etc. If you have any questions about our cancellation policy please email us at events@charmcityrun.com PRIOR to registering.
