An official finish.
Time: 8pm – 14.5 hours – This is a HARD cut. 1 second over the 8pm mark will result in a DNF. You will still celebrate your day with us with food – beer – and friends. But you will not be listed in our official results nor will you receive a finisher medal! Push hard, the last few miles are the “easiest”.
Overall Pace: 19:33 per mile.
Section pace from Final Countdown cut off 17:09
Drop Information: If you make the decision to drop during the race it must occur at one of the aid stations. Please keep in mind some of these locations will still require up to a 1 mile hike to get to a vehicle in order to get back to the finish area. This is an important piece to take in to consideration for this race. There are no easy outs once you cross the river at Lower Falls. At this point the race becomes a wilderness event and you must be prepared as such
Finish: The Finish line and celebration will be at the picnic circle at the Mount Morris Dam and Rec center. We will have food, drinks, and bathroom facilities on site. The food at the post race will be a Rochester favorite – Garbage Plates. We will also have plenty of drinks!
Garbage Plates (all Vegan) will be prepared by the team from Dogtown in Rochester. You will have a “to go” option or you can choose. . You can get your food, your drinks from Genesee Brewing Company to recover and enjoy.
Parking and facilities will be available here and at the Mount Morris Dam and Recreation Center 6103 Visitor Center Rd, Mt Morris, NY 14510
Drop Bag Information:
You may leave 1 drop bag at the start line (back of our truck) and you will have access to the bag at the Lower Falls Aid station. This is the only location you will have access to a drop bag as it is the only location that is vehicle accessible for our volunteers. The drop bags will be delivered to the finish line around 2 pm – Please have your bag labeled with your name so they may be sorted alphabetically at the aid station. If you do not, they will be lumped in with the randoms on a table for you to find! These are to be bags, not bins, not luggage, not totes… BAGS. We carry these around, and we will not be able to carry anything other than bags
