Join your FSR friends for an early summer fun run to Shirley Plantation in Charles City on Saturday, July 11th.  We'll start at the Chicahominy Riverfont Park in Williamsburg. We'll start the registration process at 10AM. The planned route is 82 miles and should take about two and a half hours with a couple of breaks. Niether the plantation nor the gardens are available for touring, so we'll end up at the Upper Shirley Vineyards, where you can grab lunch if you like.  No reservations necessary.

With prevention in mind and to comply with government health rules, we have revised our Fun Run procedures. Our objective is to systematically reduce the risk of virus infection while still enjoying our cars and each other's company. An FSR working group has carefully examined the most recent Virginia COVID-19 guidelines as well as PCA National guidance in producing these event procedures.
 Please read the FSR COVID-19 Safety Ground Rules on the next page. You also will be required to acknowledge the PCA Communicable Disease Exposure Waiver before registering, which must be hard copy signed and brought to the event. While this seems legalistic, all this is required to conduct any club event during the pandemic. Our procedures will also be reviewed by PCA National prior to issuance of a certificate of insurance.

Event conduct and requirements are as follows. PLEASE READ:

  • If you feel ill or are sick or have a temperature of 100.4 or greater, please stay home. If you become sick at the event, you will be asked to immediately leave.
  • Please bring masks, an ink pen and gloves/hand sanitizer with you for all participants in your car.
  • Please complete and sign the PCA Communicable Disease Exposure (CDE) Waiver for EACH PARTICIPANT before leaving home and bring it to the event. You can download the CDE Waiver at:  PCACommunicableDiseaseWaiver202005281.pdf  .
  • Completed forms will be collected during registration. Those who have earlier completed this waiver will need to check our master list at registration.
  • During registration, all event team members will wear masks and use hand sanitizer. We will ask them to check their temperature that day before leaving home. The registration area will be sanitized before we start.
  • Registration will start at 10 AM at the Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Highway, Williamsburg, VA 23185. You are asked you to park with spaces between cars as much as possible. You are asked to stay with your car until a free space is open at the registration table. Observe six-foot social distancing throughout the event. When you are not with your car, please wear a mask.
  • Registration will first start with a hand sanitizing station that everyone must use.
  • Each participant will need to submit their completed PCA CDE Waiver or confirm a waiver is on file. Next everyone must sign the usual PCA Event Insurance Waiver.  
  • Finally each car will get a large brown envelope with the group number, car number, usual safety introduction, route instructions, maps and finally alternate take-out eating choices at the end. For example, if you get package #2-3, then you are in the 2nd group, third car.  The package will also identify your group lead’s name, cell number and type of Porsche.
  • When you get your route package envelope, you will return to your car and await the run group drivers’ meeting.
  • Considering social distancing and crowd size restrictions, we will have several smaller run group drivers’ meetings conducted by the run group leaders. There will be no single large drivers’ meeting like in the past.
  • Groups will be 5 groups of 8 cars plus a lead. The last group will also have a sweeper. There will also be photography along the way again.
  • Groups will depart 10 minutes apart to reduce bunching up.
  • The Fun Run ends upon arrival at Shirley Plantation (501 Shirley Plantation Road, Charles, City, VA 23030). Note the last part of the approach road is bumpy gravel.
  • There is no cost for this event except the optional plantation grounds tour.  If you'd like to have lunch at Upper Shirley Vinyards, they can accomodate and you can cover your own lunch tab .
  • The route is about 82 miles long and will take about 2 ½ hours. There are two breaks planned: Mobil Station, New Kent, VA and Sunoco, Quinton, VA.
  • You are reminded to maintain social distancing.  Not handshakes, hugs or the like.
  • Again, we cannot stress the need for each person to assess their own personal risk of infection. If you feel sick or have a temperature, stay home. If you feel these preparations and procedures are inadequate, please stay home.

We hope to see you there!
