Race Updates

Race Update #2 for 8-Hour and 20-Hour (Race Update #1 below)

In less than two weeks you will be participating in a race that is unlike any other in the world. It demands teamwork, physical endurance, mental sharpness, skill at multiple sports, across difficult terrain and you must figure out how to get from one place to another. No other sport in the world demands those six challenges of its participants. In fact, I don’t believe any sport demands more than three of those things! And despite these demands, it’s about as much fun as you can have over eight or twenty hours. There are more smiles than looks of anguish – compare that to any other endurance race.

“Enjoy the ride… The simple joy of going somewhere and working toward goals under your own power must shine through. Look around, breathe the air, feel the sweat on your back and smile.”
— Rebecca Rousch, world champion adventure racer

We are sharing as many race details as possible in case it helps you plan your gear, logistics, lodging, etc. and to help the 61 of you who are doing your first adventure race.  It’s a bit overwhelming in detail but it should make planning and race day easier. Expect one more update the week of the race.

Thanks to Our Sponsors

They also conduct prevention and education trainings throughout the community.

Team List
8-Hour
20-Hour

  • So far 183 racers are registered for the 8-hour race and 61 are registered for the 20-hour.
  • Please email me if any information is incorrect or missing. I’ve highlighted where we are missing info.
  • If you are a family team but I haven’t listed the names of your kids, please send those names and I’ll put you in the correct division based on number of people on your team. As we get more family teams in future races, we’ll look into creating a family division.
  • We’ll add team/bib numbers to this list a few days before the race and email it out to you one last time with waiver (you can print now so you don’t forget), and final instructions. Write your bib # on your waiver and share it at check-in.

Directions & Parking
The start/finish for both races is located at Caberfae Peaks Resort, west of Cadillac. The address is 1 Caberfae Lane, Cadillac, 49601. Click here for turn by turn directions.

Lodging at Caberfae
Make sure you call Caberfae if you plan to tent or bring camper. Here’s a map to show you where you’ll be. If you value shade and wind break, tent between Caberfae Lane and Ely Lane. If you like wide open spaces, tent in the large field to the east (top). For campers/RVs, you’ll need to provide a few long extension cords to access electric. See the website for other lodging options.

Divisions & Prizes

  • Solo female and male (8-hour only)
  • Two-person co-ed, females, males
  • Three-four person co-ed, females, males

The plan is to award 2 deep in most divisions because there are so many divisions. Fourteen barnwood trophies, one per divisional winning team (due to smaller race this time).

Because the 20-hour race is sanctioned by the North American Adventure Racing Series (NAARS) and required license fees which we split, they are providing top finishers and raffle winners more than $1,000 in gear from various companies associated with adventure racing in addition to our own prizes. The winning 20-hour co-ed team will received a $300 team discount toward the NAARS championship race entry. 50% of all licensing fees go toward increasing the awareness of adventure racing throughout North America.

In addition to top finisher and raffle prizes, we’ll plan to give “Major Awards” to 8-hour teams (and maybe a few for 20-hour teams too) that come back with the largest or most unusual trash and to the racer from farthest away. You can also submit nominations for a Good Samaritan award and Epic Fail award (canoe spill, bike mechanical, lost and ended up in Manistee, etc.) at the awards table. Write on piece of paper and hand to me. Feel free to remind me to award these – it’s pretty crazy at the end so I’ll do my best. You won’t be getting leg lamp trophies though – just pints and buffs/headware. Sorry to get your hopes up!

Practice
There’s still time to get sharp with your navigation. A quick list of some of the best ways to sharpen your skills is in Race Update #1. Or check out our Learn More section on the race site, especially the 101 clinic presentation for basic compass skills and 201 navigation lessons for more intermediate/advanced navigation skills.

Required Gear

  • See the 8-hour Required Gear page and 20-hour Required Gear page for details (and a list of recommended gear as well). Required gear will be standard adventure racing gear (bike helmet, hydration pack/containers, compass, emergency blanket and a few other small items).
  • We will not let you race without a bike helmet or fully charged mobile phone. Other items if missing will incur checkpoint penalties. Some basic first aid items will be helpful for bandaging cuts, etc. but are not essential to your safety so we won’t make it required. In a serious medical situation, call 911, then call race staff and get to the nearest road if possible (no deep wilderness in this race).

Check-in

  • Check-in is race day only.
  • Bring all of your required gear with you. We are planning to check for gear at check-in. Sign the waiver and get your shirt, passport, and “bib” number at check-in. Your teammate must provide you their waiver if you are picking up for them.
  • You can switch your shirt size after check-in ends
  • Keep your bikes on your car during check-in. We’ll gather with bikes near the east end of the parking lot for the start.
  • Restrooms are located inside both buildings.
  • You may bring your own paddle, life vest and a seat for the middle of the canoe if you have a 3-person team (the livery will provide cushions for the middle). Leave it with us at check-in. Canoes do NOT have a middle seat.
  • 20-hour 3-person teams in particular (due to time in the canoe) may want to buy or create some sort of middle seat. Here are some seat and pad options on line that could be shipped to you in time for the race (ignore the Crazy Creek type chairs – those are for existing seats).

Pre-race briefing

  • We’ll go over process, rules, answer any questions and hand out a race instructions sheet and maps.
  • Expect to receive at least 30 minutes to plan your 8-hour race and more than 90 minutes to plan your 20-hour route.

For those of you not familiar with adventure racing, following are the goals, elements and process.

Goal

  • The goal is to maximize the number of checkpoints (CPs) on your passport within the time limit. A team that gets, say, 30 checkpoints with seconds to spare will finish ahead of a team that gets 29 checkpoints with one hour to spare.
  • 8-hour teams: Set an alarm on your watch for perhaps 30 minutes (longer if you are doing the paddle last) until the deadline and know that fatigue will cause you to take more time to get back than you realize. If you are 1 second to 10 minutes late, you will have one CP subtracted from your total for each minute you are late. After 10 minutes, you will be an unranked team.
  • 20-hour teams: No grace for you. Like 99% of adventure races, if you are 1 second late or more, you will be an unranked team. We will have a short-course option if you get pretty far behind to help you make the cut-off as well as ALL checkpoints will be optional in the back half of the race. There will also be many bypass areas so you can skip ahead to make sure you make it to the finish on time.
  • Unranked teams are still finishers; it’s just not fair to rank you against teams who arrived on time because they decided against getting that last CP to make sure they made the cutoff.

Race instructions

  • Race instructions will be on an 8.5” x 11” sheet. They will list the rules and explain the flow and sections of the race, telling you which checkpoints must be obtained by bike vs. paddle vs. trek (on foot).
  • The instructions also provide a list of all the checkpoints by number and a brief description of the terrain on which they are located.

Passport

  • The passport is a 5.5” x 8.5” inch waterproof sheet with boxes for each CP or transition area (TA). You’ll use the uniquely barbed punch hanging from the CP flags (aka control markers) to puncture the appropriate box to prove that you found the checkpoint.
  • It’s critical that you do not lose or destroy your passport. Some teams bring a hole punch, punch a hole in a corner of the passport, reinforce with tape, and tie a decent length loop of string so they can carabiner it to their hydration pack.
  • If you lose your passport and do not recover it by end of race any CPs you had found to that point do not count. You may run back to race HQ to see if we have any more passports.
  • Do NOT waterproof your passport. Our scoring markers do not write well on packing tape or contact paper. Your passport is already waterproof!

Checkpoint flag (control marker)

  • Each CP is marked with an orange and white box flag with the punch attached to it, usually hanging from a tree branch. 20-hour flags will have a reflective stripe so they are much easier to find at night (provided your light hits them).
  • Checkpoints may be out of view, tucked behind trees or a hill, but generally are not intentionally hidden (except in public areas to minimize risk of theft in which case we will try to tell you this in advance). They are usually on some defined terrain such as a hilltop, depression (low spot), reentrant (gully), spur (land jutting out from a ridge), or saddle (lower spot between two hills).
  • We recommend looking at how these terrain types look on a topographic map by reviewing our clinic presentation or another online source. Some points will require use of your compass, topographical map and an understanding of how to read that map. Others you should be able to find by knowing where you are on a road or trail or along an obvious feature such as a lake. Others you’ll combine methods. (“we just reached that bend in the trail – our attack point – now let’s take a bearing on our compass to find the off-trail checkpoint”).

Maps

  • The maps will be pre-marked with all checkpoints and transition areas. Transition areas are where you switch from one discipline/activity to another.
  • The maps will be topographical (USGS format, 1982, the last time the land was surveyed). They are 11″ × 17″. The 8-hour race will likely have 2 sheets, double-sided. The 20-hour race will likely have 13  sheets, single-sided. Map scale will be 1:24,000 for macro-navigation and 1:12,000 or 1:16,000 for micro-navigation (orienteering) for the most part. If you have a centimeter scale on your compass, every centimeter on the map will be 240 meters on the 1:24,000 map, 160 meters on the 1:16,000 map and 120 meters on the 1:12,000 map in real life.
  • Being a nice guy and all, I’ll provide each team a Motor Vehicle Use Map that covers the race course area. There are dozens and dozens of forest roads (more like two-tracks or even overgrown one and a half tracks) not in our mapping software that this map may come in handy during the race.
  • Declination is just under 6 degrees west (difference between true north and magnetic north) but if you don’t know what declination is, it will not make a significant difference in the accuracy of your compass for this race (checkpoints are relatively close together). You can search online if you wish to know more.
  • Maps will have a street layer added so that streets are mostly accurate as of 2016, not 1982. The one drawback to this is that the street layer covers the type of road. You may not be able to tell which roads are paved, gravel or two-track. Look closely next to the layer and you can often make out whether the road has dotted lines (gravel or two-track). Most roads will be gravel. Roads that have lots of bends in them are usually two-track and probably more rugged. I have tried to note where trails are so rugged that you may want to walk your bike on them. These are very few in number.
  • Maps are not waterproofed. Waterproof your map with a map case, double zip lock bags, packing tape and/or contact paper (make notes on the map before you seal them!).

Rules & Policies

  • Please read through our standard race rules. Additional rules that may apply for the Epic Edition only will be listed in the race briefing, race instructions or on maps. Most relevant rules are listed below.
  • You must stay within 100 feet of your teammate.
  • You may NOT use GPS or any satellite-based means  to determine location, distance for any other use except to record data for after the race (keep your watch in your pack).
  • You may not rely on friends and family for directions, transportation or food/drink, just cheers.
  • Please do not visit parts of the area in the two days before the race.
  • Missing control/flag: please call us at one of the numbers on the race instructions, preferably after multiple teams have confirmed it is missing. If it’s missing and we can quickly replace the flag, we will do so. Teams that called it in will receive credit. If we cannot replace the flag, it will not count for anyone.

Planning

  • After the briefing, you will have time to figure out in which order you want to complete each section/activity and how you will travel from one CP to another within each section. These sections/activities are bike, paddle and trek (on foot). There will NOT be any surprise activities like ropes, Amazing Race-like challenges or swimming.
  • You MAY bring any of your own maps to help you plan. You may NOT bring these maps with you during the race. Just the race maps and the Motor Vehicle use map.

Course Design
See course information on our Race Information page on the race site for distances and terrain info

  • Checkpoints will all be optional and “score-o,” meaning they can be done in any order within each section.
  • You cannot use the mode of transportation (bike, boat, on foot) from one section to grab checkpoints that are on other sections (e.g., no going on-foot along the river to grab the paddle CPs)

Start

  • The start will be at the east side of the Caberfae Peaks Resort parking lot. We will start as one big group.  No waves this time since the race is smaller. On bikes. You’ll use your bikes throughout the race to get to three major areas, two with on-foot orienteering and one with paddling.

Checkpoints

  • Find each control marker/checkpoint flag within a section using the map and race instructions. The map will have circles to show the location of each checkpoint. Each circle will have a number next to it.
  • You may not go after CPs that are listed under a different section/activity (bike, paddle, trek).
  • When you arrive at the flag, you’ll find a punch with a unique barb pattern hanging from it. The punch on the flag will have the CP number on it. Verify that the number is the CP you were looking for.
  • Punch your passport in the corresponding numbered box for that flag. Punch the correct box in the passport so we can verify you were indeed there. If you accidentally punch the wrong box, then when you get to the CP for that box, punch it in the open box where your previous punch should have gone (just switch the two). Don’t punch twice in the same box and don’t punch off to the side. Punch with the barbs on top and make sure the barbs go all the way through.

Transition Areas (TAs)

  • TAs are where you switch from one activity/section to another. Water and Gatorade will be available at the paddle TA for the 8-hour race and at Caberfae which you will likely pass close by during the race. 20-hour racers will have water at TA 2, TA 3, TA 4 and TA 5.
  • 8-hour racers will be able to access their vehicles during the race to put on or shed clothes, grab food, etc. You’ll be near Caberfae for two of the three major sections.
  • 20-hour racers will not have access to Caberfae so we will allow you ONE team duffel-type bag (not a bin because bins do not pack well in our vehicles) that you can access at TA 2 and TA 4. The bag must have your team number and name on it, on a piece of duct tape or similar weather-proof substrate. The dimensions of the bin should not exceed 36″ x 16″ x 16.” The bag is meant primarily for dry clothes if the weather is bad and for food.
  • 8-hour racers will have a trekking section which will require you to be on and off your bike several times. If you normally wear bike shoes, you’ll need to determine whether you want to switch to toe-clip or flat paddles before the race, switch into running/trail shoes each time you drop your bike, or just go on-foot in your bike shoes.
  • All 20-hour and other 8-hour trekking sections will require you to leave your bikes (and any bike gear) with a volunteer. They will be extensive so if you wear bike shoes, you’ll very likely want to switch to running/trail shoes for those.
  • No paddle gear will have to be carried during the race. Pick it up at the start of the paddle, drop off at the end (including personal paddle gear you bring).

Finish

  • The 8-hour finish is likely to be just inside the Blackmer Lodge, same place as check-in. Make sure you do not block the path or door with your bike.
  • The 20-hour finish will be in Beatie’s Bar & Grill (in Mackenzie Lodge), same location as check-in.
  • Please put you bikes on your vehicles as soon as you turn in your passport.
  • Even if you don’t want your race scored, you must turn in your passport after the race so that we can make sure all teams are accounted for.
  • You can’t chip time a race like this so please be patient with results. We have to count thousands of punch marks and enter in times and CPs for a lot of teams.
  • Can’t stick around? Results will be emailed to you early in the week or can be found under the Race Recap page on the website at that time.

Safety

  • Call the number on the race instructions sheet for minor medical issues. In an emergency, call 911. Mobile phone coverage is not comprehensive. In an emergency, you may need to access the nearest road or house which generally are not far from wherever you are.
  • Obey all traffic laws. This is an open course so you may encounter vehicles and pedestrians at any point. Looking at maps, racing fast, and being unfamiliar with roads is a dangerous mix. Stop if necessary to review your map or race instructions. The ideal route has been designed to avoid major roads. However, shoulders are not often bike-friendly.
  • Ticks and poison ivy are possibilities. We recommend long socks or hiking pants and/or DEET if this concerns you. Please check your body for ticks after the race. We will give away Zanfel poison ivy wash so hopefully you win one if you go through poison ivy.

Weather

  • We will race rain or shine. In the event of a thunderstorm or other severe weather, we will postpone the race until conditions improve. During the race, please seek shelter during these conditions. You will be held at transition areas until the severe weather clears. Avoid areas where you are one of the tallest objects around. Read our complete Adverse Weather Procedures here.
  • Race organizers reserve the right to cancel the event in the case of extended severe weather. We will do everything possible to get the event in (the 20-hour race in particular can endure a fairly long delay and then be shortened if necessary), but refunds are not available if it is canceled due to significant costs we must pay in advance of the race. If possible, we’ll provide a small partial credit for a future race. The race clock will continue despite potential severe weather delays. You must still return within the deadline.

Banquet & Awards

  • For the first time, we will celebrate your accomplishments and experiences with a really nice wedding-style banquet. Congratulate the top finishers (and yourself!), hopefully win a raffle prize, and share stories of epic successes and epic failures.
  • We will have two meat options (bistro boneless steak and bacon-jam chicken breast), two vegetable options (a vegetable blend and sweet potatoes with roasted vegetables) and a penne pasta. I’m not sure what drinks we’ll have but liquor is available for purchase.
  • Non-racing guests may join you at the banquet meal. They can pay here. $20 each except kids 10 and under are $10. They can just add up the total amount and enter it in the Amount Paid field.

Picking Up Flags
Earn up to $50/hour in race credits for helping us gather the orienteering flags after the races. Certain sections on the 20-hour race can be picked up Sunday morning/afternoon because they are not part of the 8-hour race. Other sections would need to be picked up Sunday evening or Monday if you happen to be around (and get a monster multiple-day workout… and monster race credits). 8-hour sections would have to be picked up late Sunday or more likely on Monday. Email me if you are interested.

Shirt
Short-sleeved tech shirt comes with entry. Crew shown but v-neck was also an option. Same color for both. Or you could have picked our pint or headware. Photos below. (email me if you want to change to that). Check your shirt size and cut on the racer/team list.  Email me if you need to change. $15 after 8-hour check-in if we have any left.

Race Update #1 for 8-Hour and 20-Hour

We hope you are getting excited… and ready! The Manistee National Forest where the Epic takes place is a gem. It contains some of the best rivers in Michigan, the best biking, and the best trails and off-trail terrain. It’s absolutely perfect for exploring and racing. A paddle race would be cool here. A bike race too (we’ll go through this area during our 215 mile Coast to Coast gravel grinder next May). And a running race would be pretty sweet. But you get to experience all of them in one race with teamwork and navigation added in, tying them all together like no other sport on the planet. Lucky you!

Free Stuff for Recruiting
We have 50 racers in the 20-hour race and 160 in the 8-hour. That’s much smaller than past races, but we expected that to some degree. We’d love to have more teams experience such an amazing place so would you be willing to recruit friends to sign up (applies from today until July 26, 2017)? If anyone signs up for the Epic Edition based on your influence (sharing on Facebook, direct invite) and emails me to indicate this, your team will receive a Michigan Adventure Race stainless steel pint and a buff/headware (stylish dog not included; one each per team; normally $20). Their team will receive either the pint or the buff (one per team; $10 value).

There’s plenty of time for people to sign up, especially for the 8-hour race which can be tackled by anyone in okay shape. In fact, bike a half mile, grab the nearest checkpoint and head back and you are an official finisher. A wimpy one, but you are a finisher!

Volunteers
We have 2 volunteers so far for the 20-hour race and 8 for the 8-hour race. Believe it or not, we can pull off the races with this number (because Greg, Brian and I can be out there volunteering as well). But the race will go more smoothly with a few more. If you have someone traveling up with you or know someone who wants to see what an adventure race is all about, invite them to volunteer. They will earn $35-$70 in race credits toward a future race, an awesome buffet and the race shirt. They can volunteer here. 20-hour racers who are planning to stay overnight could volunteer Sunday (or help us pick up flags), extend their fun weekend and earn race credits.

Picking Up Flags
Earn up to $50/hour in race credits for helping us gather the orienteering flags after the races. Certain sections on the 20-hour race can be picked up Sunday morning/afternoon because they are not part of the 8-hour race. Other sections would need to be picked up Sunday evening or Monday if you happen to be around (and get a monster multiple-day workout… and monster race credits). Email me if you are interested.

Navigation Practice
Navigation skill trumps bike, foot and paddle speed every time when it comes to adventure racing performance. If you need some help with navigation, we have a few new options for you:

  • Navigation Practice/Clinic. July 15 at Seidman Park, in Ada just east of Grand Rapids where we can do more intermediate/advanced orienteering practice. RSVP on Facebook or contact us if you don’t use Facebook. If you can’t make it, check out the Navigation 101/201 clinic presentation and other sources on our Learn More page for tips.
  • Seidman Park Practice Orienteering Course. We just added 13 checkpoints (posts) at Seidman Park. that you can use to practice map and compass skills. Download your map and learn more here.
  • 10 navigation lessons I created with examples from past races, including a new night navigation lesson for you 20-hour racers.
  • Video analysis of navigation successes and failures from past Michigan Adventure Races. Created by Cooper and Michelle Green of MI Adventure Club/MI Backyard.

Race Details
A few race details as you begin gathering gear and thinking about logistics.

  • Lodging. Hotel lodging at Caberfae is sold out on Saturday night (July 29). I believe it’s still available Friday and Sunday. Tenters can pitch a tent in the field on the Caberfae property for $10 per night.  Campers and motor homes can stay in the parking lot for $20 per night (limited electric hook-ups). Call Caberfae for details. Only the rooms have showers so bring water, a big ol’ bag of wet wipes and towels for cleaning up for the banquet. Not into camping? Try Cadillac hotels or nearby campgrounds and rentals.
  • Expected Distances to Clear ALL Checkpoints (many racers will cut some sections short)
    20 hour
    -Bike: 70-75 miles. Mostly packed dirt/gravel roads. Singletrack is optional and intermediate. See video clip to get feel for it.
    -Trek: 17-19 miles
    -Paddle: 9-11 miles
    8 hour
    -Bike: 24-26 miles (mostly packed, dirt/gravel roads, one challenging but optional two-track – video clip).
    -Trek: 6-7 miles (recently reduced because for one trekking course we will likely now allow you to bike, trek in, trek back to bike and so on; consider bringing running/trail shoes to throw on… or don’t. Apologies for the significant change but hopefully most of you are happy with a little less demanding race)
    -Paddle: 2-3 miles (Increased a bit because it’s such a beautiful area. We will rent extra canoes to counteract the longer time you’ll be on the water and hopefully eliminate or greatly reduce any waiting time for a boat)
  • Banquet. We encourage you to stay for the special banquet after the race. No pizza this time. For the first time, we’re going to celebrate in style with a full wedding style buffet along with our awards ceremony and raffle. Non-racing guests may join you at the banquet meal. They can pay here. $20 each (our cost) except kids 10 and under are $10. Just add up the total amount and enter it in the Amount Paid field.

Mountain Bike Jerseys
We now have Michigan Adventure Racing mountain bike jerseys for sale. Jakroo Tour. Men’s and women’s cuts. Design/cut is for distance/endurance riding. One level down from highest end jersey. Pre-order only and email me about pick-up options. $85. Specs here: https://www.jakroo.com/us/tour.html. Order here: https://www.snapregistration.com/miadventu…/…/other-payments

More details to come in Race Update #2, likely a week or two before the race. See the Race Information and Required Gear – 20 hours or Required Gear – 8 hours on the race site for all the basics. Looking forward to seeing you all!
