Late comers may be parked in satellite lots, parking volunteers will let you know if the main lot is full and will direct you to these satellite lots.

Once off the bus or out of the car, head to the BIB PICK UP TENT
Bib Pick Up Sunday at Suicide Six Ski Area, Pomfret VT
6:00-8:00 a.m. Please bring your ID (or a photo of it stored on your phone) (You will also need your ID for the Beer Tent at the finish line!)
Bib Pick Up on Sunday opens at 6 a.m.
When you get off the bus you’ll see a BIG white tent-pick up your bibs there.
(Bibs are NOT given out on Saturday at the Info tent in downtown Woodstock-ONLY on Sunday morning before the race.)
Your Bibs are Chipped
The chip is attached to the back of your bib.
Racers cross Timing Mats at the Start and Finish to give you both an official “Gun” time as well as the unofficial “Net” time from when you cross the start mats.
You, and your chip, must pass over both mat systems (start and finish) in order to receive your “Net” time. If your start time is not recorded, you will only receive your “Gun time”.
The official order of finish for the first three male and female finishers will be based on “Gun” time.
For all but these 6 finishers, we will use “Net” times for official order of finish.
For the chip to work, it must be pinned on your outermost layer of clothing on your front and NOT folded or wrinkled.
Drop Bags Drop Off
Your Drop Bag will be transported from the Start area back to the Finish area just before the start of the race. You must have your CLEARLY LABELED DROP BAG to the truck BEFORE 7:45 a.m..
Label them with your LAST NAME and First Name-volunteers will sort them at the finish line for you. The more unique your bag, the easier it will be to locate it Sunday afternoon. In case of bad weather, you’ll want to make sure the bag is waterproof.
What to put in your DROP BAG: pre-race layers, a change of clothing, personal items (wallet, phone, car keys, sun block) CBHM is not responsible for lost or stolen bags or items.
Please NOT TOO BIG, NOT TOO HEAVY.
Food, Water, Port-o-lets
We’ll have food (bananas and bagels) and water tables at the start. Grab a little something to get you going, be sure to hydrate.
Then get in line for the port-o-lets. Please be patient and listen for the volunteers to keep the lines moving.
Meet Your Pacer
The Upper Valley Running Club has volunteer PACERS to help you keep a steady pace along the course. They will hold up Pace Time signs for you to locate the best place to start.
You can meet your pacer at the Info Tent on Saturday and at the Race Start on Sunday beginning around 6 a.m.-look for their signs near the Race Start.
If you are running with a jog stroller, you MUST line up at the START behind ALL other runners.
You may NOT PASS runners until Mile 5 (Billings Farm) these rules are for the safety of all our runners.
Port-o-Lets at the Start-just to repeat…
2000 runners need to GO before they GO...what does that look like-LONG LINES.
