Results from the four categories (3, 6, 12 and 24 hours) will be sorted first, by number of laps and second, by total elapsed time. Only full laps will be counted when finished within the allotted time period.
Note, the 3 and 6 hour events are run in multiple heats, so in order to be the overall winner, you must run more laps faster than all the runners in each heat.
Once again, we are using OpenSplitTime for event timing. Updates posted every few minutes to OpenSplitTime.org. Runners must check in with a timer when starting a lap, at the summit checkpoint and when completing a lap.
Runners must inform event timers or a race director when they have complete their last lap.
The Base Aid Station will be fully stocked with fruit, snacks, chips, pickles, candy, pretzels, cookies, hot chocolate, coffee, coke, ramen soup, miso soup, quesadillas, hash browns and bacon. The electrolyte drink is Gnarly Nutrition of both low calorie and regular calorie mixes.
The summit checkpoint is not an aid station, but just a check point. Runners must carry enough food water for the 7.8 round trip loop.
We will have a porta potty close to the start/finish area, but Rock Canyon Park has very nice new Flushing bathrooms approximately 500′ to the North of the Start Finish area. No bathrooms are available on the trail.
The only cutoff time is leaving the pavilion with no less time than it took to complete your last lap. For example, if your last lap took 2 hours to complete you will not be allowed to leave the Aid Station after 4:00 PM Saturday.
All runners need to notify the Aid Station timer upon finishing their final lap in the allotted time. If a runner chooses to stop early, they also need to let the aid station captain that they are done. From this point they are on their own and may choose to hang around the aid station to cheer on other runners or head home.
Pacers are not allowed. If you want to run with your buddy, just sign up. The only exception is for runners 65 years old or older.
Please no dogs on the course during the event. Dogs are welcome at Rock Canyon Park but must be kept on leash according to Provo City.
Parking is available in the dirt/asphalt lot at the Southwest corner of Rock Canyon Park nearest the Start/Finish area at Pavilion 4. Parking may be limited, so please consider carpooling, walking or biking to the event if possible.
EV Charging Stations
There are four EV Charging Stations at the EV Charging Northwest side of the Park.
