Are lighting devices required?
Yes, definitely! There will be some lighting device included in your packet but a head lamp is recommended. It is a full moon but the canyon will be dark and if we have a cloud cover the entire route will be dark. Additional lighting devices will be available for purchase at the packet pickup. Anyone not wearing highly reflective material or lighting devices will be asked to leave the race for safety reasons.
There will be a clock at the starting line and at the finish line. We ask that no timing devices be used during the race. The idea is to pace yourself so you finish at midnight.
How many aid stations?
There will be at least 4 aid stations with restrooms, locations to be announced.
Will there be race numbers and timing chips?
Yes, the race bibs will be included in your packet, there will be no timing chips.
If I get injured or for any reason can’t run after
I have registered, can I have my money refunded?
No, however, you can transfer your registration to another runner. The new runner will have to sign a new registration form and we will need their information.
Where are good places for my family to watch the race?
The starting line is great (Jolley’s Ranch), this way you can see the runners off and watch them pass Jolley’s Ranch again at mile 3. Anywhere along the course inside Mapleton city not in the canyon most will be on the trail and there is no parking. And of course at the finish line (Ira Allen Park).
Will there be a finish line party?
Yes, a big one with food and music at Ira Allen Park.
Where is Ira Allen Park?
1700 S. 800 W., Mapleton
Yes, there will be buses if you sign up for transportaton from Ira Allen Park to the starting line at Jolley’s Ranch. These buses leave at 8:00pm, 8:30pm, and 9:00pm. You must sign up for a specific time. If you don't want to take the bus it works best if you have a family member drop you off at Jolley’s Ranch and then meet you at the finish line at Ira Allen Park. This is a great place for your family to watch you start the race and see you pass again at mile 3. There will be no buses going back to Jolley’s Ranch after the race.
Can I volunteer?
Yes, we love volunteers. If you have a organization or family group or just individuals we'd love to have you help just contact one of us and we'll set you up.
