2018 FLAMING FOLIAGE RELAY START TIMES

Below are each team's start time. The last wave this year is 9:00 AM. The start times were set based on three criteria in the following order: your team's estimated total time, your preferred start time, and finally our very rough estimate based on the 10k times entered by your team. We took your team average pace and added 20% for 10-person teams and 30% for Ultra teams. This is based on historical data we've collected. It is our educated guess for planning purposes.

Each wave will go off on time. Teams should show up at the start 30 - 40 minutes before their start time to allow time to go through the check-in process. While the whole team is not required to be at the start, each team is responsible for having all their waivers (including team supplied volunteers) and ALL required safety equipment for the check-in in order to start. If your Van 2 has their safety equipment and doesn't come to the start, you will not will not be permitted to start until your Van 2 shows up to show us the equipment. You'll then have to drive ahead, skipping legs, to get where you would have been if you started on time.

If you are late to the start, you will not be able to start at a later time. You will need to drive ahead and start running where you would have been if you had arrived on time.

We manage the relay (via cutoff times at exchanges) so all teams finish by NOON on Saturday. This is based on a 10:30 pace for a team that started at 5:00 AM. Some of your estimated arrival times are well past the 12:00 PM time. This could be due to us adding 20% to each 10-person team's average 10k pace (30% for Ultra teams). That is our experience of how much slower a team is compared to their normal 10k time on this course. So if you entered a slower than your real 10k time, that is why our estimate may be much later than you will actually arrive at the finish. But if your estimated finish time is after 12:00 PM, or you start falling behind the pace you expect, you need to pay close attention to the Exchange Cut-off Times as they will be enforced.

Teams that get ahead of the opening times of the exchanges will be stopped and held in place until they won't be ahead of the volunteers arriving at the exchanges. No time adjustments will be made; the time you were held will be counted towards your total time. This is the penalty for not being so inaccurate in your total time or average pace.

Please review the Relay Handbook and/or Leg Map books for the firm cut-off times at different points along the route. If a team has not reached these points by the cut off time, the team will have to skip a leg(s) by driving ahead. Teams will not be disqualified, but will be reclassified as Helter Skelter teams. Teams who refuse to jump ahead to stay ahead of the exchanges closing, will be disqualified from the race. This is a safety issue.

The finish line meal and the beer garden will open at 8:30 AM so plan accordingly if you arrive before then. You are welcome to arrive earlier and hang out at the finish, but 8:30 is when food service will start.

The LAST DAY a request to change a start time is this Sunday August 25th. There is a $100 fee to change your start time. After August 26th, no start time changes will be made.

If your team category has changed, please let us know. You can let us know as late as the start if you want to change your Category.

Any changes, additions, substitutions of runners needs to be submitted at the start with a Substitution Form. There is a $15 fee per substitution form. There is no fee for changing your volunteer.
