You will need to be a USATF Oregon member to be eligible for championship awards. If you are not a USATF member, join here.
Competitors must bring their own volunteer to act as a lap counter. If you are unable to supply a lap counter, please contact Craig at (541) 359-9176 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try to find you one.
We are expecting masters American record attempts in this race. For records to count en route at the 15,000m and 10 mile distances, the competitor must go on to complete the entire 1 hour race. To set a record at 15,000m or 10 miles, those distances must be completed in less than 1 hour.
If you will be attempting to set a record, you must contact us so we can setup additional timing and discuss additional requirements with you. Please call Craig at (541) 359-9176 or email email@example.com
Current 1 hour records as of 6/26/2019:
The 1 hour race will start at 3:00 PM, which is after the conclusion of the 50K trail race allowing 50K competitors and volunteers to return to the track to watch the race.
Competitors must be USATF Oregon members to be eligible for championship awards or to set American records. USATF Oregon Championships medals will be awarded by age group. If you are not a USATF member, join here.
Results will be how far each athlete covered in 1 hour. Lap counters will count laps, record the approximate split time for each lap, and mark the runners position at the end of 1 hour.
Official splits will be recorded at 15,000m (37.5 laps) and 10 miles (40.25 laps) ONLY for athletes who have informed us in advance they will be attempting to set an American Record en route at those distances.
There will be substantial lapping of other runners taking place. Runners being lapped should stay to the inside. Runners doing the lapping will pass to the outside. Lap counters will record each lap and let the runners know how many laps they have completed. You must recruit your own volunteer lap counter.
There will be a water table setup on the track. Cups of water and Gatorade will be provided. Competitors may carry their own fluids, gels, etc. with them, or they may place their own bottle on the table for use during the race. It may be quite warm at 3:00 PM for the race, so please plan accordingly.
We need a substantial number of volunteers to act as lap counters, handing out water, etc. We also need USATF certified officials to act as hand timers for American Record purposes. Please contact Craig at (541) 359-9176 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to help. Thank you!
