MEET ME AT MAYNARDS NEWS
November 19, 2020
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!
NO PRESSURE TO JOIN IN PERSON!
Since the beginning, safety has always been our #1 rule. We’ve always asked you to walk or run on the sidewalk, walk or run facing traffic, and be respectful to drivers. When it gets dark, we ask you to wear a blinkie.
 
We continue to take that responsibility very seriously, especially in 2020. We are working diligently with our medical partners – TMC & El Rio Health– to determine the best circumstances for us to meet and GET OUT. That means following CDC guidelines about group size and social distancing. That means limiting the number of people that can participate in-person at any given time. It also means we will tell you if your nose is sticking out of your mask, and we will tell you if you are closer than 6 feet to us or others.
 
We take pride that we have always been a completely free event. We’re not economically motivated, other than to get people outside and connected with our downtown restaurants. Because we’ve partnered for 12 years, we feel fortunate that Hotel Congress is hosting us in their large courtyard as a kindness. We hope the small amount of money they make – and their bartenders make in tips – is token enough for us to show our appreciation.
 
Bottom line? If you don't think it is safe to meet in person, please continue to GET OUT where you feel comfortable. In fact, we open registration every Monday (and Wednesday) morning so you can get credit whenever and wherever you choose to GET OUT. We do not want anyone's lives to be at risk, but if you feel you can walk/run around downtown safely, then the in-person option is for you!
 

Regardless of how you participate - please feel free to keep GETTING OUT and of course, send your selfies HERE!
 
Every hop/skip/jump/walk/run or roll still counts!

Monday from 5:15 to 6:45 pm:
