ALTITUDE & WEATHER

The elevation at the start is 8,500 feet, and gradually descends to 7,500 feet at the finish. Temperatures in the early morning at this elevation can be around 50° and can reach up to 85° at the finish. While conditions are usually optimal at this time of year, athletes should always be prepared for adverse weather because the race is run in
a mountainous location. 

CHIP TIMING TAG INSTRUCTIONS

This race will be timed using an electronic timing chip. You must wear the timing tag for the duration of the race to receive full race results. The timing chip is attached to your bib, so please do not fold your bib or place a magnet on your bib it will render the chip useless. There is a $10 replacement fee for all lost or damaged chips. 
Once the race is over you may keep the bib and chip but do not stand next to the finish line because it will keep setting off the timing mat.
