HOW DOES THE TEAM EVENT WORK
All the team events will be relay style. The only parameter is that one member of the team needs to be on the mountain at all times and no more than one at a time. Teams can determine how many laps each racer will do – 2 in a row, 5 times or tag off after each lap.
Results from the various race categories will be sorted first by number of laps and second, by total elapsed time. Only full laps will be counted when finished in your allotted time period. We will be using chip timing for 2023. See the home page for the link, which will be live on the day of the race.
CUT OFF TIMES
The only cutoff time is leaving the 29th Street TH for a final lap at 4:30pm on Saturday. This is applicable to the 24 event only.
Each runner needs to notify the timing captain in the tent upon finishing their final lap in the allotted time. If runners choose to stop early, they also need to let the timing captain know that they are done. From this point racers are on their own and may choose to hang around the aid station to cheer on other runners or head home.
Home Base (29th Street Trailhead) – You are responsible for having everything necessary to be comfortable, warm and well-fed. The aid station will be in a warm giant tent with places for you to rest and recharge. There will be a dry place for drop bags if you choose to have them. Invite your friends and family to come cheer you on at the trailhead.
Malans Peak – There will be minimal water and calories provided by the race at the peak. Bring what you need to snack on for the way up, and scoot back to the start to refuel.
