Tardigrade Fall 2020 Obstacle Course Race

Cordova, MD US 21625


Both youth and adults are invited to join us on Sunday, November 22nd for the Fall 2020 Obstacle Course Race at the Tardigrade Obstacle Course in Cordova, Maryland!


Unfortunately, due to the ever-changing COVID restrictions and with positive cases on the rise, we will need to modify our event.  We will still be holding the obstacle course race.  However, it will be at a reduced capacity with the following changes:

  • There will no longer be packet pick-ups prior to the race.  You will receive your race bib and t-shirt on the day of the race when you sign in.
  • There will no longer be a competitive heat with age group awards.  (Yes, we are bummed too!!)
  • For those who registered for the competitive wave,  we will provide a $15 cash refund (the difference between the competitive and fun wave) on the day of the event.
  • Participants will be sent out on the course individually every 5-minutes in a staggered start approach.
  • If you wish to go out on the course with others (such as family or friends) that is your choice, and that is fine with us; however, we will allow all of those who would like to go out individually first.
  • We will have a timer going at the start, and we would be more than happy to still time you if you are interested in "competing" with your friends for bragging rights.
  • If you would like to run the course more than once, you are more than welcome too - no additional charge!  
  • If you no longer wish to participate (for any reason), we understand that, and we would be glad to issue a refund of the race fee.  However, we are not able to issue a refund for the processing fees associated with RunSignup (approximately $3).
  • The entire event will be held outdoors.  However, we ask that you follow the recommended 6ft social distancing, as well as wearing a mask when you are not actively participating in the obstacle course.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, or if you would like to request a refund, please email me at ocrtardigradetough@gmail.com.

The schedule for the event is as follows:
1:00 pm - 1:30 pm - Sign-ins/registrations and warm-ups
2:00 pm - Start of the race (participants will be sent out onto the course every 5-minutes.  Keep in mind that the race is very small.  It won't take long to stagger folks and get them all out onto the course.

We look forward to seeing you on Sunday!
