The 2010 BAR start/finish will be.....the Dark Mountain trailhead parking field at the W. Kerr Scott Dam, just west of Wilkesboro, NC! (http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&ll=36.136852,-81.228662&spn=0.010866,0.019226&t=h&z=16)
Registration will be handled through Checkpoint Tracker....http://www.checkpointtracker.com/events/12
We're finalizing plans to start both the 24 hour race and the 8 hour race between 11am and noon on Saturday Sep18th. That should give many racers the chance to drive in that morning. For those coming from further away, there are campgrounds nearby, as well as hotels in Wilkesboro. There will not be any camping provided on Friday night. The Start/Finish location is not a campground, but there is potable water there, including a bike wash area, and we'll bring in some portajohns. Racers will only spend a little bit of time there. We have lots of course planned for you, and that's where you'll spend most of your time!
Prizes....the first place teams in all divisions will get half their entry fees back and a half off a certificate for a future Bushwhack race. All racers will get some nice entry swag and a chance at the prize table.
We'll get more details posted soon for the gear list, rules, and schedule, but expect the normal things for a Bushwhack Adventures race - nothing unusual should end up on these.
No bike drops or boat drops will be required.
No support team is needed.
You will need to bring your own boats (canoe or kayak).
Come to the Start/Finish with your teammates, gear, perseverance, stamina, and your readiness for another Bushwhack Adventure!
