Timing

We will use the UltraSignup timing app for this event and there will be no live tracking. Results will be posted on UltraSignUp a few days following the event.

After each loop your time will be recored, please ensure that the timer has noted that you’ve come through the timing area.

Cutting the course or cheating of any kind will not be tolerated.

Aid Stations

In addition to standard, simple aid station fare, 24 & 48 hour participants can expect hot and/or real food at regular intervals (mostly around meal times). This could include, and will be confirmed closer to the event; chilli and vegan option & bun, sandwiches, oatmeal or eggs, pirogies & farmer sausage. Anything beyond that can be brought in on your own, and stored in your own aid station area.

Those participating in the 6 & 12 hour events will have a separate aid station area and can expect standard fare such as chips, candy and hydration. Feel free to bring whatever additional food you may want.

Drop Bags – All participants will have a designated area for their stuff. Amount of space provided will be larger for those in the longer timed events.

Crew – Family, friends and crew are allowed to help you through the aid stations. We ask that they don’t get in the way of timers or aid station volunteers.

Pacers – Pacers are allowed at any point for the 24 & 48 hour events. They are, however, to be self-sufficient. Food in the aid stations is for racers only.

Cup Free Race – At the aid stations, there will be beverages available that you may not want to put in your bottles/hydration bladder. If this is the case, please bring your own cup as we are a cup-free race.

Finishing Your Event

If you are done before the time of you event is complete, you must communicate clearly to the timers that you are finished. Please don’t got home without letting someone know. This must be done at the timing station. No one is coming along the trail to pick you up.

Emergencies

On the trail, you are responsible for you! Please make sure you have enough fluids,  proper gear, appropriate first aid, and know how to use it. If you see someone in trouble, please provide help.
