Racers: If you want to race for a prize, show up for the elite heat.
Whether they’re helping you over the wall or chasing you up the mountain, make sure they’re with you at the starting line.
Teams can be any size but must have at least 4 members to be included in the team rankings.
The best way to ensure that you are starting at the exact same start time as your friends is to create a Team during registration (or have your friends Join your team!).
Any racers that are registered as part of a team, on the SAME DAY in the SAME TIME BLOCK (Elite vs. Morning vs. Afternoon), will be moved to the common team start time in each block when start times and bib numbers are assigned (about 10 days prior to the event). Racers that are registered for Sunday will not be moved to Saturday with a team, or vice versa.
Team times are NOT determined by the captains start time. Team members will be grouped together within each block (Elite, Morning OR Afternoon), based on the preferred time that the majority of team members in that block choose.
Racers that are registered for Elite or Morning start times will NOT be grouped with racers in the Afternoon start times or vice versa.
Getting all your friends registered and lined up together on race day can be tricky. Avoid any confusion by checking out: 2016: Team Registration and Start Times.
