We are just days out to The Savage Adventure Race and wanted to touch base with you for some final information.
The team list has been updated and can be found here: http://goalsara.org/2017-races/the-savage-12-hr-race/registered-racers/
Please check your team category for accuracy. If your team is listed as the only team registered in the masters division, your team will be moved to the open category.
For ranking purposes all 3 person teams will be ranked for USARA Nationals. Master and open divisions will be combined for USARA listing purposes.
For GOALS awards, we will be doing awards and rankings separating out masters and open divisions.
Please bring exact change of $8 for your USARA Race Day license. Cash or check made out to USARA.
You will have the opportunity to return to your vehicles/transition area during the race. The water fountains are not working near the main area, so please bring your own extra water.
Speaking of water, if you are bringing your own paddle gear, you will be bringing it with you to the paddle section and back. (it is not a long distance). The paddle section is the highlight of the race, and you’ll be on the river for a while so plan accordingly. Be nice to the person sitting in the middle of the canoeJ
There is the opportunity for some water crossings while out on the foot section, depending on route choice. You are highly recommended to bring your pfd with you on the foot section. If you choose not to do so, avoid the water crossing choices.
We have also posted all the general pre-race information including directions, times, rules. This document can be found under “race day rules” on this page: http://goalsara.org/2017-races/the-savage-12-hr-race/
Please make every effort to raise a few bucks to support Wharton State Forest. We have set up a crowdrise.com on line fundraising campaign, and all you need to do is share this link with as many people as you can. You can also collect funds the good old fashioned way by asking for direct support in the form of cash or check. We are asking each race to try and raise at least $50 for this event. The funds will go to help support the forest for much needed environmental projects.
