BRISTOL, Tenn. (WJHL) — The Pinnacle retail development still plans to hold its annual 5K charity race this year.

  • All registration will be contactless, being managed completed through online registration process.
  • Minimal contact packet pickup.
  • Availability of hand sanitizer at all stations.
  • A staggered start to the race to spread runners/walkers out during the event.
  • Educate participants to space out and not run in packs.
  • Participants will be required to provide their own water and bottles for the race.
  • No water stations will be available during the race.
  • Results will be distributed via text to remove contact.
  • No awards ceremony will be held this year. 
  • Awards can be picked up at designated location after the race.
  • Require those that complete the race not to congregate together, but to disperse for social distancing.

In the event the race is canceled, participants will be able to request a refund or donate their registration fees to the United Way.
