9 am - 8K Only
11 am - 3K Only (Approximate Time)
Location: Frank Kinney Park (875 Martin Street) - Eugene, Oregon 97405
Distances: Tri Trail Challenge (8K Climb & Descent, 1.5K Time Trial, 3K Flat & Fast Loop)
How The Challenge Works: If you take on the "Challenge", you'll run three event phases in this order: An 8K with a climb and descent, a 1.5K time trial with a short climb and fast descent, and a 3K flat and fast loop. After all Challenge participants have completed the 8K, results will be posted. Then, all Challenge participants will start their 1.5K time trial in the order that they finished the 8K, taking off at 15 second intervals. After all Challenge participants have completed their 1.5K Time Trial, results will be posted and there will be a 15 minute rest period before the 3K final leg takes off in a mass start. Challenge participants receive overall and age group points from each of the three phases, and then awards are based on the lowest combined scores. What this means is that there's strategy with each phase - the end results are not based on total time, so if someone in your age group is pulling away from you on a phase, you could conserve some energy for the next phase, since the scores are based on placing. Participants in the Challenge will keep the same bib number with their timing chip for all three phases.
Awards: The top three overall male and female finishers, points-wise in the Challenge will receive awards and the top three in each age group for the Challenge. The first place finisher in each age group for the open 8K and the open 3K will receive awards.
Age Groups: 14 & under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 & over
