Hashawha and COVID

We will try to make every effort to put on our race exactly as planned.  However, due to the volatile nature of the COVID situation there is a chance that we may have to make some changes.  We may lose the use of the indoor facilities.  We may have to cancel the post race festivities altogether.   Or everything may go off just as we planned.  At this point we just can't tell what the COVID situation will be. Watch the website where we will post a notice of any changes we may have to make.

The Lottery

On January 13, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed down at 36,113.62. We use the three least significant digits, so our number is 362. See the lottery results Remember that the lottery results merely give you the right to join the entrants or wait list. You must take action to join either list. Come back here on January 15 to do that. You must act by January 23 at 9 pm.

The VHTRC Entry Process

The VHTRC uses an entry system designed to promote fairness and transparency, and also to avoid anxiety on the day that registration opens. Our system is a bit different. Some questions and answers:

Am I Going to Get In?
You have a shot at entry only if you complete both steps of our entry process.

How Will I Know If I Get In?
It all depends on how many people apply. If more than runners apply, we will automatically hold a lottery that determines who gets into the race. If you win the lottery, you're in the race -- as long as you pay your entry fee on time. If you lose the lottery, you can pay to join the preference-weighted wait list. The lottery results will be public and announced by .

Why Isn't Entry First-Come, First-Served?
We don't like obsessively refreshing our browser 15 seconds after a entry opens either! So we designed our entry system to promote fairness, transparency, and above all, calm. For more information about the VHTRC's entry system, check out the detailed explanation.

The pace of entry is casual, and you do not need to be the first to do something. But opening and closing times are automatic and final. Don't wait until the last minute! There is no sleepy lackey turning entry off. The clock on our server does. It is punctual.
