NEW THIS YEAR PRE – RACE DAY: PACKET PICK UP/REGISTRATION (PARTY)– We are throwing a party for the racers on Friday August 17th at Snowbasin Resort. We will have a light meal provided to the racers (NO CHARGE) and the meal will be available to purchase for family and friends. Packet Pick up/Registration will take place from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. There will also be light meal and entertainment provided for the participants during this time.
RACE DAY – LATE PACKET PICK-UP/RACER MEETING Saturday: August 17th 2012 Packet pick-up will be begin at 5:30Am in Earls Lodge. We will hold the racer meeting at 6:30 in the lodge in the Doe Section of Earls Lodge. All racers are required to fill out a release form and pick up a timing chip for the race during the packet pickup
RACE START TIME: The 100K Race will start at 7:00AM. The 50K Race will start at 7:30AM and the 25K will start at 8:00AM
MASS STARTS: We will be doing a mass starts with racers in start blocks based on what their anticipated (predicted by you the racer!) total race time. This will be the starting process for all the listed races. Note: Each race has a different starting time
All riders of each race category (25/50K/100K/) will start at once on their respective starts times, but faster riders will be toward the front and slower riders behind, this eliminates problems with having multiple starts and putting potentially fast riders like the Pro women or some of the single speeders behind slower riders who may be in a different category. And in the end, if anyone is unhappy with how many people they passed or how many people passed them they only have themselves to blame.
FEED/AIDE ZONES: There will be 4 Feed/Aid Zones on the 25K Course and 6 on the 50/100K Course. We have Hammer Nutrition as the Nutrition Sponsor this year and will have all the stations stocked with Hammer Products along with Fruit and Power Bar products. There will also be bottle exchanges available at multiple locations through out the course. We will have at the ½ point between the a rider support area for feed bags (Not Provided) and support from team and family members.
CUT-OFF TIME: We hate to do this, but for the safety of the racers (you) and protecting the event, we need to set a cut-off time just prior to starting the second lap. The Cut off time for the 100K will be 11:00AM and the Cut off for the 50K will be 12:00PM. At this time you will be asked to forfeit their number plate to the race officials. Now, of course we can’t make you not finish the event. So, if you’d like to continue on your own, we will have a release for you to sign and you can then continue.
