FRARY PEAK HILL CLIMB
October 14th, 2017
Want to run a ~10K on Antelope Island? Want some serious vert during that ~10K? Want a shirt with a cool logo on it?
Here’s The Scoop
Basically you run up the Frary Peak Trail, touch the radio repeater near the summit, then run back down. But there’s a little twist, it’ll be a time trial type start. We’ll start 2 people every minute. The reason for this is that first, it’s something a little different, and second, the trail is so narrow, that in order to accommodate 50-75 people, we have to do it this way. Plus, there’ll be tourists and hikers on the trail and a huge herd of runners bearing down on them may scare them a bit. Start times are randomly assigned, so you might be paired with the eventual winner. You won’t be sure of your finish place until well towards the end of the race. Adds a bit of interest.
Here’s a link to the route. http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=514500
It’s just under a 10K and I guarantee that you won’t PR unless it’s your first 10K.
Frary Peak Registration
As usual, electronic at www.ultrasignup.com. Registration should be open by August 1. We’ll also try our hand at race day registration for this one. It’ll be at the main gate and we’ll take cash, checks, or credit cards. If you wait to register until race day, you may not get a race shirt, but that’s what you get for procrastinating. Cost? $36.74 if you sign up early. $46.83 if you sign up late, or an even $50.00 if you pay the day of the race.
Stuff You Get
Well, I do have a pretty cool logo that I’ll put on t-shirts. I might be able to come up with some schwag, but don’t count on it. Snacky foods and drinks when you finish. If it’s a cold day, maybe we’ll have some hot chocolate. You also get free access to the island for the day.
Not sure yet what the winners will get. I’ll think of something. Might even be cash.
Mid October is usually pretty nice, but I have run in snow up on top in mid October.
There aren’t any. You run to the top, touch the radio repeater housing and run back down. It’s less than six miles, don’t be a wimp.
At the main gate parking lot from about 7:00-8:30am the day of the race. I’ll have day of race entry as well, but if you wait until the day of to register, you may not get one of those nifty cool shirts. And they are nifty cool.
State Park Waiver
You need to sign the state park. We’ll have it at race checkin and you can sign it there. What do you get?
