* We understand that work days can be a little hectic, if you arrive after the start of the race you will not be able to pick up your number / officially start the race, however, you are welcome to get your swag item, go out for a run on your own and join us after.
IMPORTANT INFO REGARDING CONSTRUCTION AT THE PARK AND ALLOWING EXTRA TIME FOR TRAVEL AND PARKING:
Two of the usual parking lots within the park that we use for this event are under construction and will be unavailable for us to use. There will still be plenty of parking, however, we do encourage car-pooling. When you arrive on the park property look for signage and volunteers who will help direct you to the appropriate spots to park including overflow parking in grass areas and parking on the side of the road – only park where directed. Additionally, they are doing some construction outside of the park on Rockford Road that might cause some minor delays as well. Be sure to allow a little extra time for parking and walking to the start.
NO Race Day Registration:
Please note that we do not offer race day registration
There is plenty of parking within a short walk of the start, a map showing available parking is HERE – please review it in advance.
Please know your race / bib number at check in, you can find that HERE https://www.estrs.com/201
Be sure to bring your ID when you check in / pick up your race number and chip if you care to have a beer after – you will be issued a wrist band at this time – you can also bring your ID later but before is preferred.
There are restrooms at the Moraine Shelter / race start area – there are also restrooms located at the Skyline Shelter which is very close to the start as well – see map HERE
NO Aid Station:
A reminder that there is no aid station for ESTRS races 4MI or less, IF YOU FEEL YOU WILL NEED WATER, CARRY A WATER BOTTLE!
Weather, Heat & Thunderstorms:
It’s Summer, it can be hot. Be sure to carry water if you feel you will need it, for races over 4MI we will have a water stop around the half way point. We expect that you will use your personal judgement in deciding if it is too hot for you to run. The race will be held rain or shine – however, severe weather is a different story. To date we have never called off a race early / in advance due to the potential for severe weather – hopefully, the worse case scenario would be a delay in the start time once unsafe weather conditions have passed. If severe weather were to persist after a reasonable amount of time we would call off the event.
We will be chip-timing this race, your chip will be affixed to your race bib / number, please do not bend or fold your race number / timing chip.
Results will be posted live / in real time HERE https://results.chronotrack.co
We will have some sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats and posters for sale, cash or check only.
