check-in at the registration table prior to the start of your race. Race Bibs
If you want to show up in the results, please pin your
bib number to the FRONT of you somewhere, so that it is VISIBLE. Do not fold or mutilate the race bib, because
it will destroy the attached integral timing-chip. No Littering!Littering on the course will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the race and the results.
Flashlights or headlamps WILL BE REQUIRED for all participants of this race. It's advisable to have both a flashlight
and headlamp. Special Weather-related Safety InformationYour safety is our primary concern.
In the event of severe weather (lightning, flooding, winds above 25 MPH, or tornado), we will shut the race down.
In the event of a tornado siren sounding, please find your way to a "substantial shelter," and wait for the
sirens and danger to subside. Or, if severe winds suddenly hit your location, lay down in a ditch
or low spot (that hasn’t yet filled with water), and put your hands over your head. After the danger
has passed, make your way to a paved road crossing or to a staffed aid station, so that we can get you back to your car or
civilization. Injury ReportingIf you sustain any type of injury while on the course, you must report it to the next aid station. We will have trained EMT’s
on staff to assess and/or treat minor injuries. If you sustain an injury that is deemed by the EMT staff
to need further medical attention, you will not be allowed to continue in the race, and will be driven to an area hospital
by our staff or by ambulance.
interest of your safety, there will be a cut-off time for the Half Marathon. Dropping-down to another Distance or dropping-out of the race: You can change your distance before the race until
One Week Prior to the Race, by emailing Bad Ben. And during
the race, if
you've bit-off more than you can chew, you can always drop out of the race, but you will need to notify the results team, so we aren't searching for
you. Carrying a Hydration Device is Advised:
The Half marathon for this night race
is a 2-loop course.
You have to leave the Main Aid Station (mile 6.5) by 10:15 PM Cut-off time, to start your 2nd loop.
That's a pace Per Mile of: 16 Minutes, 2 Seconds. Which is 3.74 Miles Per Hour (average).
There will be plenty of aid along the
course, but it is advisable (for your own safety) that you carry a water bottle or hydration system with you. Race
distance on the trail can take much longer than on pavement...don't run out of water!
Aid Stations: Trail Markings:
There will be staffed aid stations along the course. The aid stations will offer water & Gatorade.
The course is marked with yellow signs that will tell you "right turn," "left
turn," "straight ahead," and "wrong way." We will mark the course with ground flags and or ribbons
at important intersections or turns. Care must be taken when crossing roadways!
as Pacers: We are a dog-friendly bunch, within reason. You can run with your (well-mannered) dog, but it must be
on a leash, and you must not let it get entangled with another runner. Register your dog for any race (online, for $10). It
will be issued a bib number that needs to be attached (with your name and cell # written on it with a sharpie). Your dog will
be included in the official results, and receive a finisher's medal, if appropriate for that distance/race. We won't
allow any cruelty to animals, so you must attest to your dog's "trail conditioning." If it appears that your
dog is heat-stressed or otherwise physically stressed or injured, we will ask YOU AND YOUR DOG to pull out of the race and
seek out immediate veterinary help. Please provide water and food for your dog. You can refill your dog's water at the
Upon completion of the race,
participants can enjoy post-race food near the start/finish area.
