    Not a bad place to run a half marathon, right? Don't miss out on this view OR savings - prices for the Harpers Ferry Half Marathon increase March 1.

    This is a 2 part message from Freedoms Run and Two Rivers Treats in the spirit if keeping heath, safety, and sanity in your community.
    We are doing weekly FB live on COVID and you can view last nights message on TRT FB. We invite your questions and i'll post next weeks time on NRC FB page


    Dear Freedoms Run and TRT Friends,

    On behalf of the Freedom’s Run and Harpers Ferry Half Marathon Team, our mission is to encourage and keep our community active, healthy, and well during this stressful time. Races across the world have cancelled for March thru most of May. We plan to host the Harpers Ferry Half Marathon & 5K scheduled for May 16, 2020. If the situation requires it we will still have fun, get outside, and offer an unusual twist. Although it protects us from respiratory illness, social isolation can be damaging in many ways and we want to offer some relief done safely.

    Our Plan A if all restrictions of a group gathering are removed and we deem the situation safe: race as usual with one start for each event.
    Our Plan B if there are still restrictions on social distancing and numbers of people that can be in the same place: we will have a rolling staggered start to allow everyone to get out on the course either by themselves or in groups of a few to start between the time of 730 and 830. Our event is a small race and this would eliminate any groups of greater than a few from ever being in close proximity. We will have spies on the course and police larger social running gatherings.
    Our Plan C if even stricter restrictions: we will host a virtual race that needs to be run on the actual course at some point around the race date or an area with at least 1200 + feet in elevation gain :)

    The safety of our participants, volunteers and community remains our top priority as we monitor the spread of coronavirus. We must defer to the guidance of local, state and federal health experts as we continue to learn more about this pandemic on a daily basis. As plans for the event evolve we will update you with further information and details.

    As far as our group run planned for this Saturday, March 21. It is a "non-group, group run" :) No one is permitted to run with a group larger than 6 people - we will have spies along the course to ensure you are social distancing :) Mark and Katie will be at River Riders from 7:30am - 8:15am to hand out maps and explain the course if needed, and you can make a new friend or two to run with. If you know the course, and want to get your own small group, we encourage you to get out and get some fresh air in open space with a friend or two or even by yourself but rejoice in the feeling of seeing others out their running so indeed you're not isolated from your friends and community. If you are sick in anyway please refrain from coming.

    On behalf of the Freedom’s Run Race Series Team, we hope that everyone in your family stays safe and healthy and that we will all be back to our normal day-to-day soon.
    Finally, it is fine, safe, and healthy to meet your friends who are well and go outside on a run.

    Dr Mark, Katie, and the Freedoms Run Team

    Dear TRT Friends and Customers,

    Here at Two Rivers Treads we want you to know that the health and safety of our customers is our top priority. We and all retailers have concern surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe. We are closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC as well as local government related to COVID 19, and we are taking increased precautions by implementing the following protocols:

    • Our employees will be frequently washing their hands after any interaction and surface touching and certainly stay home if they are feeling ill
    • We will be doing daily and rigorous cleanings of all surfaces with antibacterial agents as well as cleaning all the shoe boxes when they are pulled out
    • Providing hand sanitizer for all employees and store customers
    TRT will maintain regular operations and encourage wellness and outdoor activity but we are prepared to adapt quickly if anything changes based on the current conditions.

    And for our customers who are taking measures to avoid public places, we are happy to help and answer any questions over the phone or through our web site. We will offer free shipping during this time for all online footwear orders at www.tworiverstreads.com as well as curbside pick up for anyone who wants to come by but is inclined to not come in. ph 304-885-8843

    We will be monitoring the situation closely and are committed to keeping you informed as things evolve. Thank you for your ongoing support and trust.

    Sincerely
    Dr. Mark and the Two Rivers Treads team
