PR - Personal Record Medal

The PR medal is a medal given to anyone who sets a Personal Record for completing a 
Half Marathon. It is based on an honor system. If you PR let us know and we will give you
one of these medals. 


What if I can't make it to packet pickup?

We allow someone to pickup a packet for you if you give them some form of written
permission. Email them, text them or hand write them permission. We do day of race 
packet pickup as well but we strongly discourage this due to trying to load the bus on
race day. Please be there 30 minutes prior to your are to load your bus. 


Drop13LBS Medal

The Drop13lbs medal is another medal we give at the finish for those racers who lost 
13 or more pounds in the process of training for this race. This is based on an honor 
system as well. It would be hard to track without weighing in months prior or during the
race. Either one of these would be ackward and hard to track without your honor.
 

Last Day to Register

The last day to register is Friday June 7, 2019 at packet pickup until 8:00PM. We 
close down all online registrations at 9:30PM Friday June 7, 2019.  


Are Strollers Allowed in this race?

Strollers are allowed in the half marathon if they are strollers that are theathered to 
the runner and have a hand break. The safety of your riders is our greatest concern 
and this extreme downhill could have you lose control of the rider and it could be life
threatening. Assisted athletes will start in the front of the race and parents with kids 
must line up in the back of the pack at the start. 


Are Dogs Allowed?

No Dogs!!! If you are caught with a dog on this course we will disqualify you and 
remove you from the course. It is not that we do not love dogs, it is that this is a 
Watershed Area. All things left in this area turns into drinking water in a few days. 
In addition to that Dogs are not permitted in our permit. This could jeapardize future
races in Big Cottonwood Canyon. 


What is the cut off Time?

All racers need to be to Mile 11.3 which is the mouth of the canyon by 9:00AM.
After that time the racer will have another hour to finish by 10:00AM. If you need 
more time let us know and we can start a few at 5:30AM without times. 


Do I need to ride the Bus to the Start?

All racers need to ride the bus to the start or they may not be able to start. The
only exception are for those with Push Assisted racers that need to bring up 
their strollers and those who are coming from the top of the canyon race morning.
No parking at the start. Cars will be towed at racer expense.
