March 10, 2013
Sunday

This is a new style of relay race devised by our course setter. Each team will complete 3 or 4 different point-to-point courses simultaneously with winners determined by the lowest sum of all times. Courses will be set at levels White/Yellow/Orange/Red, but here's the twist: at the mass start each teams' first challenge will be to find and assign to one another the loop maps. Awards will be given to the top three finishes in each of two categories.

The two relay categories are 4-Loop Teams and 3-Loop Teams.

All relay participants should be ready to run at 10am, when specific instructions will be given. Due to the simultaneous nature of this relay we expect everyone to be done before noon. While results are being tabulated, LAOC will hold its Annual General Meeting. Relay awards will be last on the meeting agenda.

The Santa Fe Dam map is full color, 1:10000 scale, with 2.5 m contours. This is a relatively flat area, but you want to protect yourself from the cactus and other scratchy vegetation. Wear long pants and long sleeves! While field checking a couple weeks ago it seemed less bushy than usual. Entrance fee to the park is $10.

Prereg
Mandatory preregistration is now Closed. There will be NO on-site registration for this event. Preregistered entries may pay on-site or by PayPal.
