Runner’s Promise & Health Procedures

The health and well-being of our runners has always been our top priority. While the race is scheduled for the spring of 2021, many people may still feel uncertain about future running events. That’s why we’ve done everything in our power to provide the reassurance that you need to make a decision that you can feel confident about. Beginning immediately, we are are proud to offer the Runner’s Promise which ensures the following:

  • All runners are guaranteed a refund on their race registration and Greenbrier Resort room booking if they choose to cancel by March 31, 2021.  
  • All runners are guaranteed a refund on their race registration if the race is cancelled at any time due to COVID-19. If you love the Greenbrier Marathon, want to support the race and would prefer the opportunity to run at a later time, or at any of our other Capstone Races events, you can opt for race credit in the amount of your registration instead.

Additionally, we are working closely with the Greenbrier Resort to ensure the health and safety of our runners during race weekend. Below are the current health guidelines being enforced at Greenbrier, as well as the health and safety procedures expected at the 2021 event. Please note that these procedures are subject to change with the evolving situation.

The Greenbrier Resort is proactively taking steps to help protect guests, members and employees for re-opening.

The following actions have been added to their already normally high cleaning standards:

  • Every visitor to the property must undergo a temperature screening before entering. Guests with a temperature above 100.4 will not be permitted to enter.
  • The Greenbrier will ensure that its Team Members are properly instructed and trained to maintain a fully sanitized surrounding for our guests. Surfaces and objects will be sanitized continuously or after each use. Every Team Member will have his or her temperature checked prior to each shift. Team Members will wear face coverings and gloves as required.
  • Guests will be asked to maintain a safe distance when in line or waiting, to wipe down their luggage handles before staff pick them up, sanitize their hands before entering restaurants, bars and casinos, and avoid shaking hands or unnecessary physical contact.
  • In compliance with an order issued for all of West Virginia, The Greenbrier is requiring all guests to wear a face covering while in public spaces on resort property where social distancing cannot be achieved to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Guests are not required to wear face covering in their rooms or while outdoors. Face coverings can be removed in the restaurants once seated at a table.
