During the Race
In order to ensure the safety of everyone involved without compromising fairness, this race will be timed with chips: timing the race with chips allows to start racers in intervals. Racers must cross mats in designated areas in order to time their progress; team members must exchange the chip at each transitional area.
The first mat is at the bottom of the hill on Cumberland Caverns Rd. before the creek in the grassy parking area.
The second mat is in the grassy area at Pepper Branch Park.
The final mat is at Smooth Rapids.
Each of these transition areas will be clearly marked in order to eliminate confusion.
