29th Running of the Covered Bridges Half Marathon Goes Virtual
Run 13.1 miles ANYWHERE, ANYTIME June 6-13, 2021
The Covered Bridges Half Marathon (CBHM) is going virtual. Race directors Nancy Nutile-McMenemy and Mike Silverman have been closely monitoring the State of Vermont’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
While statewide vaccinations have begun, our race directors and race committee members do not feel that enough people will be vaccinated in time to hold the race safely the first Sunday in June.
Mitigation procedures such as masking and physical distancing will still be in effect and trying to keep 2000 runners properly distanced will completely change the character of our race. (Also, we are not sure there will be enough lodging available to host everyone.)
“After reviewing safety protocols and safe distancing measures that will need to be in place to make our runners, our volunteers, our emergency personnel, and our race communities feel safe, we just don’t think this year’s race will be The Best 13.1 miles in New England. We feel it is best to wait until June 5, 2022 to hold an in-person race” said Nancy Nutile-McMenemy.
Incentives are in place to encourage runners to participate in the virtual race. Please visit: https://runsignup.com/Race/VT/AnyCityAnyState/CBHMVirtual2021
