Running Rules

 

  1. This is not a chip timed event. Runners must be able to independently complete a trail run/walk on the terrain of Starkey Park within the stated cut-off times. This terrain includes sand, mud, roots and mulch.

  2. Proper trail attire is suggested to include trail shoes, hydration bottles, bug repellant and sunscreen. Please bring your own headlights or other lighting sources.

  3. Participants should bring their own nutrition and hydration for the trails since aid will be limited.

  4. Runners should follow the park rules. Please clean up after yourself. Please yield to bikes and cars. Please use portable toilets and Starkey Park toilets (no public urination).

  5. All runners on the course must meet a minimum age requirement. Five years of age for the 5K, and eight years of age for the 10K.

  6. Runners share the responsibility to help out other runners in need. If you see something, say something.

  7. Runners must bring their own medications and be responsible for administering as needed.

Semi Serious 6-hour bike endurance challenge rules. Family fun or for the young at heart.
There are rules. What are they?

  1. Each team consists of 3 riders. Enter your team name when you register. That will link you with your team members.

  2. This is not a solo event. If you do not have a team or are short a team member you will be assigned to a team.

  3. No E-bikes. No pedal assists. Manual pedal bikes only, with front and rear brakes.

  4. The top 3 teams with the most tokens win.

  5.  Tie breaker will be an arm-wrestling competition between the tied teams.

  6. No consecutive laps can be completed by the same rider. Each rider must take their turn before there are any repeats by a rider that has already completed a lap.

  7. Bike plates will be numbered and identified as A, B or C which is the order that the teams must ride the course. Each team member must take their appropriate turns.

  8. Each rider that begins a lap must finish the same lap.  If a rider bails without finishing a lap, they forfeit the tokens for the incomplete lap.

  9. Rider changes can only be made in the designated transition area at the finish line.

  10. Each team will be issued a wrist band with a team number tag on it.

  11. Each rider will receive a number plate and it must be on the bike, and visible, during each lap.

  12. All transfers of equipment must be done in the transition area.

  13. Team members can share a bike.

  14. Riders on the course are allowed to accept assistance from other riders on the course.

  15. There is very little room for passing other riders, thus the reason for SEMI-SERIOUS. If you are approached by a faster rider, pull over and let them pass. This event is meant to be more fun than serious. Please bring your fun attitude and leave the rest at home.

  16. Have fun. Remember the cause. This is a semi-serious event. Bring your smile.
