If I can’t make the race, can I give my entry to a friend?
No, you must notify us of any changes to your entry. Because our timing and scoring is dependent on gender and age groups, if you give your race number to someone else, it will affect the timing and scoring of the event. Are there relays?
Yes! A relay may be made up of one to four members. The timing chip is used as your "baton."
What should I wear?
The primary rule is to practice in it! Running shorts, short or long sleeve shirts depending on the weather, running/trail shoes.
Costumes Encouraged! There will be prizes for best costumes. If you’re not in it for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards for competing, go for best costume and make it fun!
What kind of timing will you use?
We will be using chip timing, professionally managed by Tortoise and Hare Timing.
What is chip timing?
A computer chip encoded with the athlete's name and race number is attached to a strap that the athlete must wear securely around the ankle. A "scanner," located under mats and positioned at various places on the course, "reads" the chip and records the time as each athlete steps on the mat. Each timing chip is valuable. Replacement cost in case of loss is the athlete's responsibility.
Can I wear the chip wherever I want as long as I have it with me?
No. The strap with the timing chip should be worn on the left ankle. Wearing it on an ankle helps ensure that its signal is properly read when you cross a timing mat.
If I lose my chip, will I be timed for the race?
If you lose your chip before the race starts, see race personnel to see if a replacement chip is available. You will be billed for the $30 replacement cost of the chip. There are backup manual timers; however, it is impossible for them to always catch every participant. Thus, if you do not have a chip during the race, please do not expect to be timed.
Stay for awards and prizes! Our sponsors are providing many great raffle prizes! The awards ceremony will begin shortly after the Final Finisher crosses the finish line, and awards are scheduled for approximately noon for the 2-Hour WRUT Solo, Kids Race, Race the Base 5K, and Conquer the Mountain 5K. Awards for the 4-Hour WRUT Relay will begin at approximately 2:30.
