To All Registered Runners:
EARLY BIB PICKUP TODAY! (The Loop is tomorrow.)
We are setting up at the entrance to the Rez from 9AM-12noon.
Come get your bib (and shirt if ordered) between 9am and 12 noon Saturday, April 27th.
For those who like the summary – ARRIVE EARLY and Pack a Change of Clothes! Here are MAPS and DIRECTIONS. And please put your food donation in your sneakers now if you plan on bringing one…
On Loop Sunday morning — If you arrive later than 8:30am you may be parking FAR AWAY from the bib pickup area. You will have to dash to the showmobile and then dash to the start line. Each of those dashes can be about a quarter mile or more! That’s a great warmup, but can get you a bit frazzled. If you get to the entrance at 8am you will be set and be parked by 8:15am. If you get here earlier than that, relax and take in the sights and meet some runners and organizers!
For detailed logistics information about this year’s Loop, check this article.
The park is a “carry in – carry out” facility. If you bring it, take it back out with you please. We try to keep our trash to a minimum and we do not hand out race bags or race flyers.
Note there is NO SAME DAY REGISTRATION. We are full!
Maps and directions links are on the website here.
Don’t forget your food donation to the Community Center of Northern Westchester – “Help Feed the Leatherman!” Look for the car with the banner! It will be near the bib pickup area. Check here for latest needs. Rice and beans were high on the list last time we checked in with CCNW.
Dogs must be ON THEIR LEASH at all times. See prior notes about delayed start if you are running with your dog in the race.
If you find yourself injured, please STAY ON THE COURSE! Help will be on its way quickly. We have volunteers stationed throughout the course who can contact help quickly. We also have runners with cell phones on call if needed and ready to call in for assistance if any is required. We also have course sweeps following runners on the course.
If you wish—at the beginning of the race—you can wear an extra layer over the shirt your number is pinned to which you can toss to the side as you run by the teepee. It will be there for you near the teepee (or inside if it is raining) when you finish.
Please exercise caution and common sense at the stream crossings. Ease into each crossing slowly and do not enter them full stride. The exit of the first stream crossing can be slippery on the rock ledge. Help the runner in front and the one behind if possible.
Bring a full set of warm dry clothes (including socks and shoes) to change in to after you finish. You will get wet and your shoes will get dirty! We will have water, coffee, bagels, and fruit at the finish—but its always a good idea to have your own water on race day.
Full race finishing results will be posted to the web site http://www.leathermansloop.org/results by late afternoon after the race.
Send us or UPLOAD any photos you’d like to share to the 2019 Runner (& spectator) upload gallery!
See you bright and early tomorrow…
…..Tony, Judy, Rob, Mike, Bill, and the Loop Volunteers
