EVENT TIMING

Results from the three categories (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 in your allotted time period.

Note, the 12 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 runners in each heat.

New for 2023, we plan to use chip timing.  Runners must cross the timing mat at the start at the beginning and end of each lap and summit check point each time you pass.

CUTTOFF TIME

The only cutoff time is leaving pavilion Aid Station for a final lap at 4:30PM 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

Pacers are not allowed for any event.  

 

DOGS

No dogs on the course during the race, please. Dogs are welcome at the Trailhead but must be kept on leash.

Parking

There is plenty of parking at the Rock Canyon Trailhead, although please carpool, walk or bike to the event if possible.

Note: The events are held at the Rock Canyon Trailhead and not Rock Canyon Park.
