Sunday’s event is at Umstead South, 2100 North Harrison Ave. Cary, NC, which is off of exit 287 in I-40. Arrive by 8:00am to drop your stuff at Shelter #1 at the left (west) side of the parking lot. The youth will have a short walk to the 2 meter start leaving from Shelter #1 at 8:15am. Adults will take the bus to the 80 meter start, leaving the parking lot at 8:15am. Course assignments should be posted later tonight and will be on your maps.

After all the rain in the evening and overnight the park is quite wet. There could be water in some ditches that are normally dry. Please plan accordingly with shoes and clothing. Protect your receiver if you feel it is necessary.

It’s going to be hot and humid tomorrow. Bring your own water to run with. If you want electrolytes at the finish, either plan to put them in your water carrier or bring an extra bottle for electrolyte drink. There will be no cups.

2&80m equipment check at the hotel 5:30pm
Team meeting at the hotel at 6pm
Friday’s general meeting will start at 7pm. I will discuss the procedures for the classic events and answer questions.

Water

All competitors are required to carry water with them on the course in a reusable container.  Single use plastic bottles are prohibited.

  • It is going to be hot and humid.   We don’t want anyone to suffer dehydration out in the field.  
  • We will be supplying water at the start and finish, and an electrolyte drink, Vitalyte, at the finish. The water will be commercial purified water with a pump delivery system.  
  • We are committed to reducing our use of disposables and single use plastics, so disposable drink bottles or plastic disposable cups are not permitted at the start, finish or out on the course.  
  • You must bring a reusable water hydration system with you.  We recommend a backpack or belt pack with a hose so you can easily drink during the competition. 
  • Leave an additional drink container at the finish if you want to keep the Vitalyte drink separate from your water pack.
