Bix 7 organizers have announced that they are lifting all restrictions on coronaviruses for the July 24, 2021 race. This means there will be no cap on the race, you will only have to wear a mask if you are not vaccinated and there will be no delayed departures.
So essentially the race will look like it was in 2019. The race will take place on Saturday July 24, with an 8 a.m. start on 4th and Brady streets. Bix 7 and Quick Bix will start at 8 a.m.
According to the QC Times, race director Michelle Juehring announced that COVID-19 safety protocols were lifted on Friday morning after consulting with the local race medical team. Race organizers are calling the race an opportunity for the Quad-Cities community to “Back to the Start”.
Last spring, race organizers and local health officials decided to cap the race at 10,000 participants and put in place measures to increase the space between runners for social distancing. This included staggered departure times. These restrictions have been lifted.
You can still register for the race and volunteers are always needed. Here is where you can sign until the race and inquire about volunteering. This is the 47th year of Bix 7 road racing. It’s sure to be a good one.
