Race Update #2

Greetings my friends,
It is a crazy, crazy world right now and for many of us our only respite is time outside and time on the trails. This is the second of Monthly Updates. Leading up to the August 15th event.
As of today (5/23) our event is still on and I do not see that changing, but of course unforeseen circumstances can occur.
I have limited the number of participants to 40. This is a very manageable amount and allows for quite a bit of distancing at the start and finish.
There will be a ZOOM Video Meeting for you Pre-Race Talk the week prior (date TBD)
As of now there will be a rolling start time of between 7:00 and 7:30 a.m. on AUGUST 15TH.
Every 2 minutes a group of 5-6 starts. Order of start will be determined by order of entry. You will be notified of your start time via email and this site.
There is ONE AID STATION at 13.1 ish miles so plan accordingly with fluids. You will be on exposed ridge lines and sudden storms can be a hazard. You may also encounter wildlife.
RUNNERS WILL LEAVE DROP BAGS WITH THEIR FOOD ITEMS/CLOTHING AT THE START PRIOR TO THE START AND WE WILL HAVE IT FOR YOU AT THE TURNAROUND AID STATION
YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR OWN RACE FOOD.
There will be BOTTLED WATER AND CANNED SODA for you at the Aid Station.
All awards/hoodies will be given out as you finish. Refreshments and brown bag will be handed out.
The course is currently clear for the first 5 miles up the Trail 120 then under snow but by June should be open. The USFS has ensured me the trail will be cleared of downed trees by race day.
Till then stay healthy!
Mike
