FAQs

HOW MANY AID STATIONS ARE ON THE COURSE?

There will be 11 aid stations, one approximately every two miles along the course.  There will be port-o-lets and basic first aid kits at each one.   There will also be HAM or cell phone communications for emergencies at each aid.

ARE HEADPHONES ALLOWED?

In order to protect the safety of race participants, MP3 Players, iPods or other devices with headphones are highly discouraged. Participants who choose to wear such devices assume all risks associated.

CAN A PARTNER BIKE ALONGSIDE ME OR CAN I PUSH MY CHILD IN A BABY JOGGER WHILE I RUN OR WALK? 

No. For your safety, as well as the safety of your children and/or your crew, absolutely no strollers, baby joggers, bikes, wagons or other similar mechanisms will be allowed on the course, other than bikes used by race officials.  There will be traffic on the course, as well as areas of the course that are not suitable for non-official bikes, strollers or baby joggers.

CAN I BRING MY DOG ON THE COURSE?

We love our pets too, but no.  For the safety of other participants and for your pets, we cannot allow pets on the course.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I ENCOUNTER WILDLIFE?

Please don’t approach wildlife.  The most common animals you are likely to encounter are deer and antelope which are likely to run from you.  Bike marshals will be patrolling the course, on the lookout for wildlife, but in the unlikely event that you encounter a rattle snake or a skunk, please give them a wide berth and notify someone at the next aid station.  If you are bitten by a snake, move away from it, then stop moving, remove any constricting items near the affected area, keep the bite lower than the heart and seek assistance from another participant or race marshal to get immediate medical assistance from the closest medical aid station.

WILL THERE BE A COURSE SWEEP?

Yes, we will have people sweeping the course.

WHAT ARE THE COURSE CUTOFFS?

Participants have 8 hours to complete the course.  Walkers are welcome if the course can be completed on time.  Additional marathon cutoff times are 4:15 (10:15 am) for the half marathon point and 6:30 (12:30 pm) for the 4th relay point by Central High School..
