COVID-19 UPDATE (as of 7/17/20):
XTERRA DINO Northern Indiana is ON for July 25.
However, Covid-19 is still a lingering concern. After months of steady improvement, new cases have taken an uptick in Indiana, so we're taking extra precautions for the race:
*Online registration only - deadline Wednesday, July 22. If you intend to race, please register promptly so we can plan accordingly.
*Face covering required at check-in and while at event site, except while racing.
*Maintain social distance at all times, except as necessary during the race..
*No more than 75 athletes will be allowed in any wave or start group.
*There will be no post-race awards ceremony or activities - please disperse after finishing.
*Do not participate if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.
*Note that St Joseph County (home to the race and city of South Bend) currently has a mandatory face covering order for enclosed spaces.
*We ask participants and potential participants from outside our geographic region to carefully consider risks to public health before deciding to attend.
*Any registered participant that is uncomfortable under these conditions may request a refund by July 22 and receive a full refund (excluding Active Network processing fee)

If you're racing, do you have a friend or family member who can help out? Volunteers are needed for aid stations, course marshals, lap counting, and lifeguarding. We can provide you with a park entry pass and a few other goodies! We may even be able to help with your entry fee if you provide us with a volunteer.
