General race day timeline Saturday morning:
Below is a general map of the race course (always subject to change)...Green is start, Red is morning meeting point and finish. Yellow is Friday night.
• To assist in race planning; There is only one official race transition area which is located at the Swayback Bridge trailhead. The run and the bike will start and finish from here. You will be allowed to leave one gear bag at this location during the race for transition purposes. Gear bags and bikes will be transported back to the finish at Gold Star park after the biking is completed.
IMPORTANT: When you leave the transition area after the biking portion, whatever you take with you on your way down to the kayak/canoe leg will remain with you until you arrive at Goldstar park (this includes some running, swimming and kayaking), so plan accordingly.
Note: The boat leg ends at Goldstar park where you will find the LONG awaited finish line. You can choose to leave more equipment along the course, but race organizers are not liable for any equipment left at any point other than the official transition area (Swayback Trailhead).
Race planning is just about complete, but we reserve the right to keep the lid on a few surprises (that’s why its called an Adventure race right?). But I’m sure you wouldn’t want it any other way. Anyway, Here is what we will disclose:
Like previous years, competitors are not restricted to certain types of canoes/kayaks. Hey we’re all about fun and keeping it simple; If it floats you you can use it. Race qualified boats may be rented at a discount at the time of registration – either online, or mail-in. Boat rental is $35 for teams, and $25 for individuals. We realize some own their own kayaks that are better/faster than rentals, but we've decided that is just the way it's going to be and not a protestable item.
30 Minute Penalty
Racers should prepare for 4-6 hours of hydration such as camelbacks, electrolytes, fuel, etc. We will have a water station at the Swayback Bridge trail and several other locations along the race route.
