Start Point: West Austin Park
Time: Arrive 7:45 – start time will be 8:15 – how the race will start: We will post the first checkpoint on the NOC FACEBOOK page between 8-8:15pm.
Parking: There is plenty of parking along 9th / 10th street in the neighborhood near the park. The finish point and the after party are fairly close to the park.
Equipment: Men will need to carry 20lbs of gear / women 10lbs. Some athletes prefer to use just dead weight, others pack their packs with mission essential items that you would use in real world situations. There is a good chance that you will get to use some of this during the course but all that is required is weight and 1L of water. This must be weight at the finish and does not include water / or items picked up along the way. Prizes are awarded to the first 3 teams and those teams will be weighed upon completion.
Party: After party will be held at Zocalo Cafe at 1110 West Lynn Street from 930 to midnight. It’s recommended to have a fresh shirt / change of clothes in your pack. All athletes that participate get free booze….yes free. Guests and non athletes can attend as well for $15. We’ll have wine, sangria, 512 draft beer, margaritas, Horchata-coladas. Food is on your own. Guest passes can be paid at the door or HERE.
