If you’ve been itching for the return of in-person races, look no further! Registration is now open for several 2021 live races in Bend, courtesy of Lay It Out Events. Check out their announcement below:
Lay It Out Events is excited to announce the addition of two more races to their line-up for 2021. Since staying active is crucial for a person’s wellbeing in the COVID-19 era, safe outdoor races are a great way to stay motivated and provide a healthy activity for everyone.
Lay It Out Events has adapted their running events to comply with safe regulations in the era of COVID-19. Expect small wave starts to ensure social distancing, limited numbers of runners and only one spectator per runner allowed. In addition, race venues are spacious to allow runners adequate elbow room.
After successfully hosting two in-person races in 2020, with positive reviews, Lay It Out Events has become a name that is synonymous with safe event practices for everyone. Some races also have a virtual component for those who feel more comfortable running on their own or from afar.
Run Oregon’s own Matt Rasmussen ran the 2020 Haulin’ Aspen and had some great things to say about how this live race went. Reading his recap and looking at the great photos just might give you the racing bug. I know I’m already plotting my 2021 schedule to include a few trips over to Bend for some fresh High Desert air and live races. Now is the time to register for early bird pricing! Happy training. 🙂
