UPDATE as of JULY 11: THE 9AM WAVE IS FULL- IF YOU JUST REGISTERED OR ARE PLANNING TO REGISTER ON RACE DAY, PLEASE COME TO THE 11AM, 5PM OR 7PM- THANK YOU!
Racers will have the option to start at any of the following times on July 18:
9am, 11am, 5pm, 7pm
Participants may only race 1x. Official times will be kept throughout the day and winners will be announced following the event, overall 1st, 2nd,3rd place male and female awards will be mailed or available for pick up. Other awards to be determined based on the number of participants.
Racers will receive a finisher medal, shirt and some other goodies, but there will be no post race party.
More details will follow. I might require you to choose your "starting corral" to make sure we do not have too many at any specific time, so please monitor your email as we approach race day. This is obviously a fluid situation. Packets can be picked up on race day or the day before between 4 and 6pm at Freedom Park. Race day registration will be available, but T-shirt size is not guaranteed after July 8..
There will be water on the course, but no volunteers. The course will be heavily marked with signage so no one gets lost. Course maps will be available.
The course is 20% singletrack trail (narrow, rooty mountain bike trail B), 60% dirt surface, 40% paved surface. Course is 90%+ shaded. The course has rolling hills, I will post a Strava map soon on Facebook for those interested.
Please shoot questions my way at firstname.lastname@example.org. I guarantee the T-shirts will BE AMAZING! I have not offered a 7am start time because I want EVERYONE to enjoy the brutal heat that July can offer, so pick your poison!

This race is at Freedom Park in Williamsburg, VA. The Start/Finish will be in the meadow parallel to the Botanical Garden area. Parking will be around the Interpretive Center building. Restrooms are limited. There are 2 restrooms on the exterior of the center used by the whole park and Go Ape. I will have 3 porta potties near the start/finish. You will probably feel there are less options than a normal race for restrooms, please keep this in mind.
Local time: 5:01 PM
Awards will be given as follows:
Overall top 3 Male and Female
Overall top 3 Male and Female Walker
Top 3 in the following age groups Male and Female:

Awards will be available for pick up following the event. I can mail awards, but because of the added expense I would prefer to avoid it. If you know someone who can pick up for you please have them do so! Thank you!
