Sorry to say the Bike Route will be the same for 2023,(as in the past). The Park has filled the worst of the Cracks, there is one area of concern, it is close to Kapasiwin turn-in. Please if you get a chance check it out and in the race proceed with extreme caution, IT IS VERY ROUGH! I have had conversation with the National Park and we are hoping that they will address the really bad areas this Fall and next Spring! Hopefully 2024 we will have a better road.
FOR 2023 CUT OFF TIMES
For the Swim we want everybody out of the water at 55:00. If you are a poor swimmer but a awesome bike rider, we will let you keep going.
For the Bike the time to complete the course will be 3:45 (swim and bike time combined). We need the Bikes off the road at 11:30, we are giving you a extra 15 minutes to complete. The Run course will shut down at 5:50, but if you are within 500 m of finishing we will let you complete and Finish.
We want everybody to succeed, we just need to get the course clear and cleaned up before the Banquet. As well we don’t want to over work our volunteers, as we need them to come out next year!!
THE RACE STARTS AT 8:00 ON SUNDAY MORNING. WE WILL NOT WAIT FOR YOU!
