(Ill connect to as numerous as possible to make it easy. But likewise inspect their social networks and/or any announcements on the website for Covid19 updates and policies.).
This is a list of mostly California Half Marathons for 2021. Event plans for the year.
Note: Some race info and registration websites have 2021 dates for these races however when you go to the real race site it keeps in mind that the race will be virtual. Be sure that the race you are registering for is a live/ personally run if thats what you desire. The fees for some of the virtual races are extremely comparable to personally occasions so its not obvious based on what youre paying that its only a virtual race.
Below I create a short list of half marathon races in California that are not cancelled and keeping in person events this year. Rules and regulations on what types of events are allowed, what size and health requirements– vary based on area. California is on the more restrictive side of things so 99% of races and running events have been cancelled completely. But, I have actually seen on social media that other states have had in person races considering that the summertime. (Im leaving my viewpoints out and just sharing the realities.).
Talk to your local running shop, running clubs, city websites and event listings to see if there are runs or races in your location. Some small, local race organizations seem to have a little more freedom to accommodate social distancing, masks before the start and other health policies since theyre coordinating a much smaller sized group than huge city marathons with over 30,000 runners.
Plus– lots of running clubs and race organizations have actually been struck really tough economically by the pandemic (essentially unable to carry out company at all in 2020). So, supporting local runs and races is an excellent way to ensure theyll be around next year.
Many of the races that have actually been held so far are smaller sized events with guidelines on social distancing, mask wearing and rigorous aid station procedures (or no help stations at all and requirements to bring your own water). Make sure to examine all the details for a race before you register AND inspect again before the race in case race organizers added any suggestions or requirements
