Cut Off Policy

The race loop is 2.62 miles from start to finish. 
The tent area is located directly behind the start and finish lines so you will not have to move very far to get to the aid station or your personal area. 
The parking lot is located just behind tent city so when you arrive on Frontage road and park in the main lot 
The loops will begin at 11:00 and stop at 7:00. Each loop will begin with the kettle bell ring
The paths are wide and this is a closed loop with two police officers manning a small section of road on frontage road
At the beginning of each loop runners will  given 40 minutes to complete the loop. 
If you fail to complete your loop under 40 minutes your bib will be pulled and you will be removed from the event.
You are allowed to finish the event on your own but will not be in the official results. 
All runners (except the ruckers) must wait until the top of the 40 minute mark to start their next loop. 
If you complete your loop in 20 minutes you will have to wait 20 minutes before the next loop. 
If you complete your loop in 39 minutes you will have a 1 minute break. Ya dig? 
The first race will start at 11:00am with the 50k runners and thus every 40 minutes after that we will begin a new lap with new distances joining
