Health and Safety Information

The Nature Emporium's Run for Southlake prioritizes the health and safety of all of our participants, volunteers, staff, and spectators. In order to maintain everyone's safety, in accordance with Athletics Ontario and public health regulations, we will be enforcing the following:

Face Coverings

Participants will not be required to wear a face covering while running. However, all in person attendees will be required to wear a face covering while in the start area, starting corrals, and post-finish area with the exception of while eating or drinking.

Limiting Touchpoints

We are reducing the amount of contact in certain areas on race day. Participants are encouraged to wear hydration belts to reduce overcrowding at hydration stations. Medals will be handed to participants, rather than placing them around their necks.


We will be providing hand-sanitizing stations throughout the event. Please follow best practices on personal hygiene, including regular handwashing, avoiding touching the eyes, mouth, or nose, and covering your moth and nost when coughing or sneezing.
