Online registration for the Solo Ultramarathon and online Team Management for the team and pairs divisions closed at midnight on Friday, October 18th. Packet pick up will take place on Friday, October 25th at The Draft Haus in Sturgeon Bay (4-8 pm) and next to the start line at The Shoreline Restaurant in Gills Rock on Saturday morning. Only one team member needs to be present to be able to pick up the bibs and t-shirts for each team. Individuals may still register for the solo event at packet pick up on Friday or on Saturday morning between 6 am and 7 am. The solo event WILL NOT reach its full capacity this year so we will not turn away any solo runners who wish to register on event weekend. Team captains may make additional changes to their rosters–including additions and substitutions–by filling out a form at packet pick up on race weekend. Teams needing to make roster changes on Saturday morning are encouraged to arrive 30-45 minutes ahead of their assigned start time. WE WILL NOT PROCESS ADDITIONAL SOLO RUNNER REGISTRATIONS OR TEAM ROSTER CHANGES VIA EMAIL OR BY PHONE THIS WEEK.
The 2013 Event Guide is now available online. It has the individual leg maps and lots of useful information for team members and captains. Click here or on the image below to download the event guide in pdf format. Full-color, printed copies of the event guide will be available at packet pick up on race weekend.
Start time assignments for this year’s Door County Fall 50 are now posted to the event website.
SOLO RUNNERS: All solo runners will begin at 7:00 am to afford them the maximum amount of daylight possible to complete the event. The course closes at 6 pm so there is an 11 hour time limit for solo runners, requiring a minimum pace of 13:12 per mile to finish.
RELAY TEAM RUNNERS: Teams are assigned to three start times at 8 am, 9 am and 10 am with the slowest teams beginning at 8 am, the middle third beginning at 9 am and the fastest beginning at 10 am. The slowest teams (8 am wave) must average a minimum pace of 12 minutes per mile to finish prior to 6 pm. The anticipated team paces shown in the table are calculated based on the average pace of the individual team members, information that the participants provided to us.
WORRIED ABOUT YOUR START TIME?… Based on the calculations, ALL teams should be able to finish between 3 pm and 6 pm on race day. Each year, we are contacted by team captains who experience unplanned roster changes in October and worry that these changes will jeopardize their ability to finish prior to sunset/course closure at 6 pm. Team captains who experience unplanned roster changes that slow their anticipated pace are advised to rearrange their leg assignments to address the problem. In other words, assign the longer and/or hillier legs to the stronger runners on your team. Adapting to changing circumstances is part of the challenge, folks!
PLEASE NOTE: WE WILL NOT GRANT START TIME CHANGES FOR ANY REASON.
STILL NEED TO MAKE ROSTER CHANGES?… DON’T PANIC! Teams may continue to change their roster, transfer their team to someone else, and update information online through Friday, October 18th at midnight. Teams may also make last minute changes and substitutions on Friday or Saturday of event weekend.
To provide the safest event possible and provide the most ample parking for support vehicles, Fall 50 organizers have relocated two of the rest stations for the 2013 event. These include:
