Cut Off Policy

All runners have 40 minutes to complete each 2.62 mile loop. At the beginning of each loop runners will be given 40 minutes to complete the loop. All laps are started together with a cowbell ring. If you fail to complete your loop under 40 minutes your bib will be pulled and you will be removed from the event. If you complete your loop in 20 minutes you will have a 20 minute break. If you complete your loop in 39 minutes you will have a 1 minute break. Ya dig? The first race will start at 11:40am with the 50k runners and thus every 40 minutes after that we will begin a new lap with new distances joining in at lap 3, 8, and 12! All runners who need to stop their race for whatever reason before finishing please return your chip tag at the timing table and indicate that you are pulling out of the event.
