Packet Pick Up/Event Timing Info For You and Your Support Team

Packet Pick Up and Equipment Inspection

  • There are now two days for you to pick up your packet. If there is an extenuating circumstance that will prevent you from picking up your packet at one of the times noted below, please email Julianna@ManukaSEM.com to discuss your options. We will allow packet pick up on race day on a case by case basis, but you MUST notify us in advance.
  • You will need to provide your paddle board and kayak for inspection to insure they meet the safety requirements of the race.
  • If you are racing as a team, one member of your team can pick up the packet for everyone.

Timing Cutoffs on Race Day

Race the State will have timing cutoffs. If you have not completed a leg by one of the cutoff times, a course marshall will usher you to the next transition zone. If you are in a relay your teammates can continue to run the remainder of the course, but the leg that was not finished in time will be scored as DNF. If you are competing as an individual, it will be up to the Leg Director to determine if you are capable of continuing to race. The timing cutoffs are generous as we want to see everyone finish the race, however it is for your safety that we adhere to the timing guidelines below.
