If you need mechanical support on event day, mechanics will be available at the start line for minor issues, at the Rest Stops for major repairs, and roving on bicycles to help fix flats or do minor repairs on the go. Please note that parts will need to be paid for so bring cash or a credit card with you.
To signal that you need mechanical assistance, turn your bike upside down so it rests on the saddle and handlebars. This will clearly indicate you are waiting for assistance.
Medical personnel will be stationed at the Start and Finish areas, on motorcycles roaming along the course and at all Rest Stops. Furthermore, our Medical Response Plan is extensive as your safety and care is our top priority. In the event of an incident requiring our medical team to remove a rider from the course, our priority will be to the injured rider. Our medical team is unable to transport bicycles as they will be focused on timely care to the patient.
In the case of an emergency requiring immediate medical attention dial 9-1-1
Professional timing services are being supplied by RaceDay Timing. They will use Chronotrack B-Tags, a proven technology for cycling event timing. The timing mechanism will be affixed to the back of the bike plate so make sure not to damage yours. Results will be posted live on the website.
IMPORTANT: When attaching the bike plate to your bike, it’s VERY important to NOT bend the timing chips. Keep the bike plate as flat as possible and do not bend or fold the bike plate, otherwise you may break the timing chip and you will not receive an official time.
Be sure to smile for the cameras. MarathonFoto photographers will be positioned along the route taking stunning action photographs of every participant. Photos are available for purchase after the event.
