Mountain Rats Ultra Race

September 19, 2020

Eagle, Colorado

We’re excited to bring the 2020 Mountain RATS Festival to Eagle, CO. We are grateful to have this chance to celebrate the Eagle outdoor community. We will have a full list of protocols and rules to make this event go off in a triumphant and respectful manner. As the pandemic continues to evolve, there is a strong chance some of these protocols will too.  We promise to communicate any changes via email, social media and our website – but it is ultimately your responsibility to read, understand and follow the full list.

This is a friendly community based event. Politics has no place here in relation to these rules. Our ability to hold these races is contingent on following these safety rules put into place. If you do not wish to abide by the rules you will be asked to leave the venue. This is a chance for all of us to get off social media, enjoy the mountains and challenge ourselves. We can accomplish this if we’re able to ensure everyone is following county health guidelines.

Here is a summary of the main points:

  • ALL participants (runners & volunteers) are required to:
    • Sign a COVID-specific waiver
    • Wear a mask at all times, except when 1) running 2) eating/drinking
  • Limited Menu & Service at Aid Stations
  • Crew and Spectators Strongly Discouraged
  • Modified Awards Ceremony
  • Wave Starts
