Todd Chandler's Video Race Report:

 

Course / Location
The course is run on the Perry State Park MTB Trails, managed by Lyle Riedy of the Kansas Trails Council.  Part of the entry fee will go to the Friends of the Trails fund, after expenses.  Start / Finish: Branded B Ranch, 7184 74th St, Meriden, KS 66512 
Link to Location

The 50K is a 2-loop course.

Ultra-course Starting time: 8 AM.

 

The Half-Marathon is a one-loop course, with Carlyle Trail missing from the loop.   

Starting time: 8 AM 

Cut-off Times / Drop Bags

50K Cutoff Time:
 The cutoff for the last 50K loop will be 12:30 PM. You must leave the main aid station by that time, or you won’t be allowed to continue.
 Half-Marathon Cutoff Time:
 If you are caught by the Course Sweep, you will be driven back to the start / finish area. The course sweep leaves the main aid station at 12:30 PM, and follows the last runner / zombie.

Drop Bags:
 Drop bags are only allowed for the 50-Kilometer race. At the morning check-in you will be given the opportunity to leave your drop bag at the Main Aid Station area on tables labeled, “Drop Bags”, within sight of the finish line. One pile will be for the Kimberly Road aid station, and one for the Main Aid station. On the two-loop 50K course, you will pass the Kimberly Road aid station a total of two times, and the main aid station, once.
 Write your name, and bib number onto each bag. Please pick-up your drop bag(s) after the race, or it will be donated to a needy local runner or recycled.

Passing Etiquette / Headphone Policy:

Passing runners on the trail:
 There will be plenty of opportunity to pass, prior to entering any trail sections of the race. There might be a "conga line" of runners as you enter the trail. Be patient when you are part of this crowd of runners, as it will disperse soon enough. Don't follow the runner in front of you too closely, since you won't have time to see obstacles, and may trip.

 To pass a runner on a narrow, single-track trail: Let them know you are approaching. Yell out, “On your left.” If it is unsafe to pass, be patient, a space will open-up, soon enough. If you are the slower runner, find a spot to step to the right to make it easier for the faster runner to pass you.

 Faster Runners:
 Be courteous but assertive, consistent, and loud, when passing.

Headphones/earbuds:
 Personal Music WILL BE ALLOWED in this race, but the use of two earbuds or headphones is NOT, for safety reasons. Again…for your own safety, you should only have one ear engaged in your music.
 You are not the only runner in this race...tuning-out everybody around you is just RUDE, for the reasons above (of passing on narrow trails). There are multiple race distances happening in this event, and there will be some VERY FAST RUNNERS approaching from
behind you at certain points on the trail. Please don't inhibit both of your ears by using both earbuds or headphones to cover your ears, unless you want to be pulled from the race.

 Camping: 

 

Informal, Laid-Back Camping:

if you are tent-camping, there is a large, mowed lawn area that you can set up at, right at Branded B Ranch.  Get ahold of Rod Brown (proprietor), sometime after setting up and pay him $20 per night.  Showers will be available Friday and Saturday in the southernmost brown wood building.

  You can email Rod Brown questions about camping, here: rodney.richard.brown@gmail.com

Coffee will be ready by 7 AM on Saturday. J

2016 Results by RaceDay Timing Solutions.  


Synopsis:
Two weeks of weed mitigation, chainsawing and trail maintenance on the Lake Perry MTB Trails paid-off.  Special thanks to the following Trail Nerds for pitching in: Keith Dowell, Coco Tieghi, and Ben Holmes.  And special thanks most of all to Lyle Riedy (the Kansas Trails Council Trail Steward), for all of the hard work. 

On race day, the weather cooperated and the trail was in good condition.  We had some great competition and sportsmanship.
A stellar day in Kansas!
