Report to the Parking Area no later than 6:45 AM (please see map).
There is absolutely NO PARKING at the Start area (drop-off's before 7:30 am are OK, follow signs to Suicide Six ski area from Woodstock)
Directions to the Race Parking:
Parking Area at Quechee Gorge Village on Route 4.
From Interstate 89: Take Exit 1 (Woodstock exit) and follow Route 4 west towards Woodstock. The parking area is a Quechee Gorge Village, about 2.4 miles from the exit-- follow signs.
From Interstate 91: Take Interstate to White River Junction, Vermont, to Interstate 89 North. Then follow directions above for I-89.
From the West: Take Vermont Route 4 east; go 8 miles past Woodstock, -- follow signs.
Personal Baggage: Baggage will be transported from the Start area back to the Finish area just before the start of the race. Plan on bringing your own bags with labels already on. In case of bad weather, you'll want to make sure the bag is waterproof.
Finish: Polo Field, Quechee, Vermont
Course difficulty: The course has a very gentle downgrade, dropping 200 feet in elevation over the 13.1 miles. There is a moderate hill at mile 5 and a short, steep hill at mile 8.
T-Shirts: Shirts will be given at the end of the race to each finishing racer. Shirts cannot be mailed. To see sample of the t-shirt material, 100% Certified Organic Cotton, visit the website of our supplier: http://www.aurumorganic.com/Products.html. T-shirt sizes are by gender because of the different cuts. Womens - S, M, L, XL. Mens - S, M, L, XL, XXL. All finishers are guaranteed a t-shirt in their size at the finish.
BIB (Number) Pick Up: Racer's Bibs will be given to runners at the Start Area at Suicide Six the morning of the race. We have got the system down pretty well so you wait less than 2 minutes to get your bib. Please note, the Bib will ONLY BE GIVEN TO THE REGISTERED RUNNER.
Timing: We will be using the ChronoTrack "B" Tag Timing System again this year. The B Tag is attached to the back of your bib, eliminating the fussing with your shoe laces.
Racers cross Timing Mats at the Start and Finish to give you both an official "Gun" time as well as the unofficial "Net" time from when you cross the start mats. You, and your B Tag, must pass over both mat systems (start and finish) in order to receive your "Net" time. If your start time is not recorded, you will only receive your "Gun time". The official order of finish for the first three male and female finishers will be based on “Gun” time. For all but these 6 finishers, we will use “Net” times for official order of finish. The USAT&F does accept “Net” times for rankings for masters runners (40 and over). However, it is unclear if they will accept “Net” times for other age groups. Web site results on cbhm.com will be posted in both "Gun" time order as well as "Net" time order.
For the B Tag to work, it must be pinned on your outermost layer of clothing on your front and NOT folded or wrinkled.
Results: Same-day results are provided by Granite State Race Services. Results will also be available on the Internet at www.cbhm.com and at www.coolrunning.com.
Water Stops: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 miles, plus Start and Finish.
Electrolyte Drinks Available at Stops: mile 6, 8, 10 and 12.
Port-o-lets: mile 1.5, 3, 5.
