We have a lot of 1st timers with us this year and several returning racers! So it is time to recap the most important rules and let you know what to expect on race day, and when to show up!
First and most importantly, everyone should have fun! This is the FIRST and MOST IMPORTANT RULE. WINNING SHOULD NEVER BE PUT ABOVE THE SAFETY OF OTHER RACERS OR YOURSELF, WE ARE ALL HERE TO HAVE FUN AND GO HOME WITHOUT INJURY.
ALL RACERS NEED TO BE AT HATFIELD PARK IN ALVA OKLAHOMA NO LATER THAN 7:30 AM AND CHECK IN AT THE PAVILION ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE PARK THAT IS JUST WEST OF THE POOL.
Parking is available around the pool and if necessary across the street at the high school.
During Check in you will be required to sign a waiver, without a signed waiver you will not be permitted to race. If you cannot attend your race or if you fail to sign your waiver or if for any reason cannot attend or are late, there are no refunds for your entry fee.
We will have some bottle water from Devine Water for the participants, but you are encouraged to bring more for yourself. Elbow pads, knee pads, sunglasses, are all okay. I would avoid wearing precious jewelry to avoid the risk of it being lost during the race.
There will be food and other vendors at the event so don't forget your spending $$$.
The First three people (or teams) across the finish line in each chalk will have their time recorded for prizes.
Prizes are dependent on the number of entries and will be awarded directly after the event.
Individual racing will begin promptly at 8 a.m. and is expected to be completed by 9:15 a.m.
Team Races will begin immediately after.
IT IS EACH RACERS RESPONSIBILITY TO STAY WITHIN THE COURSE. WE WILL HAVE AS MANY SPOTTERS AND OFFICIALS AS WE CAN TO HELP DIRECT YOU AND WILL MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO CLEARLY MARK THE COURSE. TO BE ELIGIBLE TO PLACE IN THE RACE YOU MUST COMPLETE EVERY OBSTACLE.
Every registered racer will be receiving an email with a T-shirt order form, only racers registered by the 09/08/2018 will be eligible for a T-Shirt. Team captains will be responsible for turning in their team order on time.
