Timing a Race: Rio Del Lago 100 & 50K

Posted Sep 11 2010 5:30am

Instead of being at Team Challenge practice this morning… I am timing the Rio Del Lago 100 mile & 50K race in California for Desert Sky Adventures .

The 100 mile runners have 30 hours to complete the race. The 50K runners have 12 hours to complete the race.

Since there will obviously be a large amount of time where people aren’t coming across finish lines, I’m also going to be kind of heading up the “command central”; as runners make it through various checkpoints on the course, volunteers will be tracking their bib numbers and radioing the details back to me. I will keep all the details in a spreadsheet so that we make sure not to lose anyone out there.

I’m excited to witness this event and see the ultra-endurance athletes as they come across the finish line. 100 miles is an awesome achievement and I’m privileged to be a part of the team to bring about the return of this event.
