Ahead of a different-looking Ross Running Festival on October 11, competitors have been notified of just how different things will look.
Details were released on the event's social media outlets on Sunday with all disciplines to feature capped entry limits.
The half-marathon and 10km races will see 350 competitors take part, with organisers basing their COVID plan around the more popular events, while the marathon, five kilometre and two-kilometre runs will only feature 100.
While entries opened for the much-loved event on July 8, competitors won't be able to wait until the last minute to enter, with restrictions forcing entries to close on October 8 - three days before the event.
ELSEWHERE IN SPORT
As is the case with many events held in 2020, spectators will be unable to view the race from certain spots.
The finish line will be out of action for fans but family and friends of those participating as well as those with a general interest will be able to watch from throughout the town and on the grass area adjacent to the finish.
As soon as the first three male and female competitors cross the line in their respective events, the presentations will be conducted with spot prizes drawn during the pre-race greeting.
Runners will be able to collect their bibs from Ross town hall from 6am on race day, which will mark the second version of the event this year after a virtual run in April attracted 24 marathon competitors.
