Estimating Your Time
Historical Time: Previous Golden Leaf times will be used for wave placement unless the runner has not participated in this event before. Historical times will be looked at for all competitors.
Estimating Your Time: Typically you can add 30 minutes to road half marathon with no elevation gain (more if you are unaccustomed to an elevation of 8000 feet). Another way to estimate your time is to compare yourself to how racers finished in 2011. Out of 748 finishers in 2011, the following results were achieved: 1st place - 1hr 25min; 50th place - 1:55; 100th place - 2:05; 187th place (top 1/4) - 2:18; 375th place (middle of the pack) - 2:33; 561st Place (top 3/4) - 2:52. Please try to be realistic with your time as this will allow the waves to work properly and reduce congestion on the course. If a time is not entered above, participant will be placed in the final wave.
Aid Stations/Cut-off Times
As this is a RUNNING RACE, There are 3 cut-off time locations where runners will be asked to exit the race if they do not meet the given times: 1st Aid Station (1.75 mi.)=40min.; Where Government Trail leaves the Elk Camp Ski Area Rd(4 mi.)=1hr 10min; 3rd Aid Station(10.5 mi.)=3 hours.
