Race Day Details - Oct 1, 2016

BigT, October 1, 2016
Twenty-seven hrs...

The final race preparations are in various states of completion for this year's 32nd annual event. Weather looks first-rate for this Saturday and the aspen colors have set. Carpool and/or arrive early to minimize the inevitable parking congestion!

As always, there will be race day registration from 8-845am. All of you last minute fence-stradlers should make the drive up to Aspen Vista and join the race. Striders Club Members will pay the full registration fee on Saturday morning (discounts ended with online registration Thursday evening). As a result of several requests, there will be a walking/hiking division again this year. The start time for this group will be moved back to 8am. Expect race morning to be busy and if there are any lingering questions of what to expect, please refer to our helpful primer on this topic:
