Bike: see course description in detail below
Run: see course description in detail below
If you are planning pre-ride/run the course, I highly recommend you print out the map, course description listed above and also this map of all of the trails on the Frisco Peninsula. The course can be tricky to find on your own as some of the trails are unmarked or have confusing intersections. Please know that the course will be marked extremely well for the race!
Also, if you do pre-ride/run the course, we recommend you either park at the Frisco Adventure Park or in the Two Below Zero parking lot that is located just after you turn from Recreation Way onto the Campground Road. This is a mulch lot and is labeled ‘Two Below Zero Parking’. If you choose to park at the actual transition area, you will have to pay a $7 USFS fee per vehicle.
First things first, all racers must provide their own equipment for each leg of the event; stand-up-paddle board (SUP,) personal flotation device (PFD,) mountain bike, helmet and running shoes. If you don’t own a SUP you can rent one locally from Kodi Rafting, Ten Mile Creek Kayaks or Epic Mountain Gear. One of our event sponsors, Shaboomee also has SUP rentals available. Please note that the Frisco Bay Marina SUP’s are all reserved for the race; they will not have any day-of rentals available to plan ahead and come prepared with your SUP rental lined up before July 16, 2016!
Racers can pick up their bibs and race t-shirts at the Frisco Bay Marina on Friday, July 15, 2016 from 4:00pm-6:00pm or on Saturday, July 16, 2016 from 7:00am – 8:30am. Please note that if you are picking up your race bib on Saturday morning you must pick up your bib prior to dropping your bike and running gear at the Pine Cove Campground. If you are having a friend pick up your bib for you, please print out the event waiver, sign it and have your friend turn it in. No signed waiver = no bib.
In 2016, all racers will receive a Pearl Izumi tech tee at packet pick-up. Sizes are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. We will have men’s and women’s tees available.
