On-course aid will not be consistently available from the organizers. We will be focused on safety and officiating. We'll have emergency support but can't be out there with everyone to keep you moving.
You need to bring a crew. Pick smart people who you trust to take care of you.
One to two road vehicles to meet you at points along the course to provide water, food, and shelter as needed.
Crews can access most of the course directly from the Cascades Lakes Scenic Byway but an SUV is strongly advised.
Each participant MUST designate a Crew Chief. The Chief will serve as your official point of contact during the race. In the event of emergencies or weather, we will contact the Chief.
This needs to be a person you trust, who is capable of coordinating crew members, food and water, gasoline stops, sleep time, and above all... your race effort.
We generally suggest renting a sat-phone for your Crew Chief to ensure constant communication access. The Race Director will also have sat phone communication at all times.
