Each team consists of up to 10 runners

(you can have less but then the total mileage per runner increases)

  • Name your team and be creative. We’ve had some very interesting team names like “The Snot Rockets”, “Team Chubby”, and “The Nasty Boys”
  • Choose a team captain and all the race correspondence will be emailed to that person.
  • There are two divisions, Open and Mixed.
  • A mixed division team must have at least 4 females and 4 males.
  • Each team will be handicapped by age and sex (see tables below)
  • Each team is limited to no more than three vehicles!!! More vehicles would make it unsafe for runners.
  • We recommend that one or all of your vehicles be vans or 4-wheel drives but they do not have to be.
  • You might want to bring along a mountain bike too. We will tell you if the trails are not able to be biked.
Handicap System

The system is based on the WAVA Age Grade Tables that are universally accepted and used. For example, if you had 4 females (40%), and members that are aged 14 (5%), 47 (8%), and 55 (18%), your team handicap would be 7.1%. The sum of the handicaps divided by 10. Therefor, your team time would be 92.9% of your actual time.
