Grinduro CA COVID Event Policy:

In order to attend Grinduro California, all attendees including registered participants, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, staff, and friends/family are required to present proof of COVID vaccination or a negative test result taken within 72 hours of race day. Children under 12 are required to show a negative test. Please see details below:

  • In order to participate in Grinduro California in any capacity (registered participants, sponsors, vendors, volunteers, staff, friends/family), you must pass a COVID-19 Safety Check by providing:

    • A state issued ID or passport plus one of the following:
      • Official COVID-19 vaccination certification (two doses of the Moderna NIAID or Pfizer BioNTech vaccination, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccination, must have been received at least two weeks before race day - no later than May 7, 2022); or
      • A negative COVID-19 test result from within three days of race day (test must be administered between May 18-20, 2022; test results must be officially documented from the testing agency; results from self-administered tests will NOT be accepted).

    • The COVID-19 Safety Check tent will be located near the registration/packet pickup tent.

    • If you do not present the proof of vaccination or negative test result, we cannot allow you to participate in the event in any capacity unfortunately, or allow you to enter the event venues during the event.
      • Registered riders who fail to provide proof of vaccination or negative test will not be permitted to check in, pick up their packets, or participate in the event and will not be eligible for a refund.

    • Once you have cleared the Safety Check by showing the appropriate documents, you will be given a wristband to wear throughout the weekend so that other participants know that you have been checked. The wristbands will be color coded to help everybody easily communicate their comfort levels with personal contact. You will be asked to choose from the following colors:
      • RED = No personal contact.
      • YELLOW = Please ask me.
      • GREEN = Okay with personal contact.

    • If you see somebody at the event venue without a wristband, that means they are not officially part of Grinduro California and have not been checked. You can choose to keep your distance.

    An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. By attending Grinduro CA, you expressly agree to comply with any and all policies and safety guidelines put in place by the event organizers, and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, waiving all claims and potential claims against the event organizers, and their affiliated companies relating to such risks.

    Grinduro CA reserves the right to modify the COVID-19 safety guidelines. Depending on local guidelines at the time of the event and the current rate of COVID spread, it is possible that masks will be expected to be worn indoors, at packet pickup, at the mass start, or when social distancing is not possible.

    If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, we would be happy to discuss it further with you. Please contact us. We thank you for your cooperation to ensure the safety of our community and participants.
