Awards After the Race: We cannot have a large gathering for an award ceremony. Instead, check the Negative Split website on your phone at www.nsplit.com/results, or the paper copies posted at the picnic shelter, to see if you placed in your age group or were one of the top 3 overall men or women and you can collect your award after the race at the picnic shelter where you picked up your packet. Please give us a little time after the race to have your award ready for you, so you have plenty of time to stow your gear after the race before picking up your award. Awards are race glasses that will NOT be mailed. If you miss the pick up after the race you will need to contact Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a pickup time for your award.
Special Considerations: Please note the following:
• Mountain bikes, ONLY. Athletes must use mountain bike frames with 26-29 inch wheels, and tires with a minimum 1.5 inch width (no road tires allowed) and have some sort of knobby, raised pattern that covers more than 50% of the tire surface. So that means the slick portion of the tire is less than 50% of the tire surface.
