We will have an Advanced event on Sunday Feb 1, 2015 at Umstead West. We will start in the small clearing just past the gate at the park boundary at the end of Old Reedy Creek Rd.
As usual for “Advanced” events, we ask that you pre-register, in this case by Saturday morning, so we know how many maps to print.
Courses should be open by 10:00am, and will close at 3:00pm.
Results will be delayed for the Jan 25 event due to download box problems.
We will have a Regular event on Sunday, January 25, 2015. This event is open to the public; everyone is welcome. There will be a class for beginners at 12:30pm, and there will be courses for everyone from first-time beginners through a set of Advanced courses. The event will be held at Umstead South (take I-40 to the Harrison Rd exit, park in the large parking lot, and follow the signs downhill to the large shelter).
Courses will open as soon as we can get final controls out into the woods; expect first starts to be possible somewhere around 10:00am. No new starts will occur after 2:00pm, and courses will close and controls will be picked up starting at 3:00pm.
Results for the New Year’s Day Relay at Umstead West.
Josef Trzicky has designed another New Year’s Day relay for us.
There will be a mass start at 10:00am, at Umstead West on Thursday Jan 1, 2015. Instructions will be at 9:45, and people will likely be pairing off into teams a little before that, so particularly if you don’t already have a teammate you should arrive before 9:30am.
This is an “Advanced” event, so we ask that you pre-register by 4pm December 31 so we know how many maps to print and have time to print them.
Teams consist of 2 people. One person runs 3 short legs each about 1.3K and the other person runs three of the long legs each about 1.7K. The really nice thing about this event is that there are a bunch of people waiting for their teammate to return so there is a lot more socializing than usual.
