COVID SAFETY PROTOCOL (updated for 2023)

  • Masks are not required, but strongly recommend while on shuttle vans, and recommended when in aid stations
  • Please be respectful and mindful of others’ personal space, as always


Results from the three categories will be sorted first by number of laps and secondarily by total elapsed time.  Only full laps (to the summit and back) will be counted.

Live timing will exist in 2023 via  See the home page for the link, which will be live on the day of the race.

Cutoff Time

The cutoff time is leaving Church Fork Aid Station for a final lap at 4:30PM Saturday.  One caveat exits to accomodate incredible fast runners.  If such a runner comes in after the cut-off and they want to head out for a final lap, if their most recent lap was faster than the time remaining (before 6PM) they will be permitted to try for one more lap.

All runners need to notify the Aid Station captain upon finishing their final lap in the allotted time. If a runners 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 take the next shuttle back to their car.


Home Base

We will have a well-equipped, and fun aid station in the Church Fork picnic area, roughly 300′ up from the picnic entry gate. Food, water, music, encouragement, is what you’ll find here.  You are strongly encouraged to bring all necessary gear to support you throughout the event to this aid-station where it will be stored in a covered tent and accessed as you require it.  Food and drinks are intended to support race participants only.
