START TIME/REGISTRATION DETAILS: We have calculated the initial start time's and they have been communicated via email. These times are a combination of the combined teams race pace and our logistical requirements. If you notice something that seems off, please let us know so we can review.
RACE DAY/NIGHT BEFORE REGISTRATION: As a reminder, registration will be held at Trapp Family Lodge on Friday 8/12 from 5-7 PM. Teams may also register the morning of the event. We ask that teams arrive 30-45 minutes prior to the published start times in order to complete registration. Be sure to have all of your safety gear at registration or you will not be permitted to register and start the race.
KILLINGTON COSTUME LEG #14: Both the Killington Uphill (#14) and Killington Downhill (#15) have become the topic of legends. The Killington Uphill (#14) is now the official "costume leg" so dress to impress but be sure your costume is family friendly.
FUNDRAISING: Now is the time to make the push on helping us increase the amount we can donate each year to our partner charities. We are again working with the Boys and Girls Clubs in Vermont and very hopeful all of you will take up the initiative to raise money.

Safety Gear: It is never too soon to be thinking about safety during the event, especially during the night legs. Registration packages cannot be picked up until each team's safety gear is checked so please be sure to bring it with you to the registration table when you arrive. Each team is required to have (2) safety vests (2) headlamps or flashlights and (2) rear facing flashing lights. Each team will have their safety gear checked at registration and won't be allowed to register without it. We have a limited supply of Flashers and Safety Vests available for purchase. If you purchase from us we will have them waiting for you at the start line.
