RULES FOR THE 2017 RACE IN LAKE COUNTY
     
EVENT DATE & PLACE
April 1, 2017 in Eustis, Florida
 
PRE RACE PACKET PICKUP
Monday, March 27th, 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm |
1884 Restaurant & Bar, 12 East Magnolia Avenue, Eustis, FL 32726

Your packet will include pre-race instructions, two bib numbers and two shirts. You may pick up other teams’ packets for them.

Unfortunately, there is NO RACE DAY packet pick-up, unless your team is from more than 25 miles from Eustis.

If you are traveling farther than 25 miles, you MUST ARRIVE at least 45 minutes early on race day to pick up your race packet at the registration/information desk in Fountain Green at the corner of Eustis Street and Magnolia Avenue. The best address for GPS systems is 101 East Magnolia Avenue, Eustis, Florida 32726.

YOUR BIB NUMBER
Each team member must wear a bib number on race day. Pin the bib to your front of your race shirt, which must be worn on race day. Make sure you confirm your start time on your bib number.

One of the Bibs has a radio chip on it. Protect and keep it on there!

GETTING TO THE RACE AND CHECKING IN
Everyone must check in at least 30 minutes prior to your start time at the following location:

RACE PARKING
Proceed to Downtown Eustis and park in any of the public parking areas. You may report to the Registration Tent in Fountain Green for check-in. If you already have your packet, you can proceed to the Finish Line Festival to start your race. Starting at the Finish? Yep, cause you have a chance to visit vendors at the Finish Line Festival who will give you clues you'll need to compete in the race.

STARTING LINE
After visiting several vendors in the Finish Line Festival in Downtown Eustis, you may take one of the buses from Alee Academy to the starting line. Or you may carpool with other racers. In other words, either leave one car in downtown Eustis and drive another one to the starting line at ??? (TBA March 27th) or ride our bus.

WHAT TO BRING RACE DAY
Race t-shirts, with bib numbers pinned on front, MUST be worn by all participants on race day. Your shoes will likely take a beating, so don't wear those brand new $100 Nikes. Don’t forget your sense of humor! The race is, above all else, really really fun!

You must have an ID with you to drink beer. If you check in at the beer tent when you arrive and get a wristband showing you have been ID'd, you can stow your ID in your car so you don't have to carry it through the race. Also, you can retrieve your ID after the race and get carded for beer. Either way you choose, you will be required to show ID to receive beer.

When you finish the race, report to the photo/food ticket/drink ticket booth to receive your Cigar City Brewing Finish Line Festival tickets. Your drink tickets are redeemable at the beer tent or non-alcoholic beverages. Your food tickets will entitle each team member to a meal.

An ideal location for family and spectators is the race start area as many challenges are close. The race course map will be published and distributed on March 27th at 7pm at the Packet Pickup Location (1884 Restaurant & Bar). Give the map to family and friends so they can pick out places to watch you. The map will also be available on our website.

ROAD RULES
At the starting line, you will be ordered by your starting time. 3 to 4 teams will start every minute, beginning at 9:00 am.

NO ROADS WILL BE CLOSED FOR THE RACE. Please stay on the sidewalk and obey all signals from police officers and crossing guards. Please cross only at a signal or stoplight.

The course may have steep sections or rough, rocky terrain. Please GO SLOW and watch your footing.

You must obey all orders given by Law Enforcement, safety personnel and volunteers wearing race-provided t-shirts.

Pay attention to signs along the race course. Some of them may feature interesting facts that you will want to remember. Others will tell you where you must WALK SAFELY and NOT RUN.

COURSE CLOSING
The course will close at 2:00PM or when the last racers have finished each station.

AWARDS CEREMONY
We intend to hold the awards ceremony in Fountain Green before 2pm. We will announce the awards ceremony at least 15 minutes before the start so you can gather at Fountain Green in the park. Awards will be given in several categories, including:

  • Male/Female
  • Male/Male
  • Female/Female
  • Parent/Child
  • Corporate Cup
  • Charity Cup
  • Best Dressed Team

WEATHER
The race will be modified to deal with weather issues, but it is considered a “rain or shine” race, so come ready to race in any kind of weather!
