SAFETY GATE
This year at the Mt.

Any runner who, in the opinion of our medical staff is "struggling" or showing any signs of "distress", will be removed from the course and not allowed to finish. This is a precaution meant to protect your runners. We appreciate your support.

SCORING
The first five runners of a team will score.  The 6th and 7th runners on each team will displace.  Teams who finish with fewer than 5 runners will not be calculated in team scoring.  Results will be available approximately 25 minutes after the last runner finishes.

TIMING
We will be utilizing chip timing from Finished Results. If you have any changes YOU MUST REPORT THEM PRIOR TO THE RACE START TO THE PROBLEM SOLVING AREA LOCATED AT THE SOUTH END OF THE FINISH CHUTE. All runners must wear the bib and timing chip assigned to them or they will be disqualified. THIS YEAR CHIPS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED!
