 COVID Safety Protocol

***This protocol is still in place for 2022 at this time and we will pay attention to Washington State Guidelines. Should we need to adjust it, we will. ***

Prior to coming to packet pick up or to the event, we are asking the following of everyone, participating/spectating/volunteering/working/picking up thier packet: Monitor your Covid symptoms and vulnerability. If you have any symptoms or have been around anyone who does, please email Deanna@BuDuRacing.com and we will defer or refund (as appropriate), but please understand that money has been spent long before race day for every single person.  

Post Race Food

  • We are still working on what items we will be providing for post race food, but will have it for you.


  • We will provide a podium and announce the winners, for those comfortable doing so. If do not want to do this, we can give you your award.


  • Hand sanitizer will be available around our race venue as a courtesy. Cleaning of common venue areas will be enhanced.

 BuDu Racing, LLC Charity of Choice: JDRF!

JDRF BuDu Racing, LLC is proud to pledge a portion of the registration fees to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF). The mission of JDRF is to find a cure for diabetes and its complications through the support of research. Type 1 diabetes is an autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly, and can be fatal. Until a cure is found, people with type 1 diabetes have to test their blood sugar and give themselves insulin, every day of their lives. And even with that intensive care, insulin is not a cure for diabetes, nor does it prevent its eventual and devastating complications, which may include kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, stroke, and amputation.
