Personal Tent Setup
Participants will be allowed to set up a 10 x 10 area along the inside of the track area for the duration of the event using weights ONLY. No stakes in the ground as the infield is a artificial turf field. The setup window will start at 7:30am race morning.
Chip Timing Protocol
We will rotate the direction of the race every 3 hours. When you arrive for packet pickup you will be given a bib and a timing chip that corresponds with your bib number. The timing chip with a neoprene strap will be placed on one of your ankles (depending on the finish line antennas you will have to place the timing chip/strap on a specific ankle). During the event, each time you cross the finish line your chip will be read by one of our antennas and recorded by our reader and timing software. Your name will then appear on our timing clock and TV indicating that you have completed a lap. Our timing software will also indicate how many laps (if it is a multiple lap race) you have completed. In the event that someone is not near the timing table and you do not see your name on the list of runners who have recently crossed the finish line please inform one of our staff members. At the conclusion of the event or when you are done running during the timed event please return the timing chip and strap back to the packet pickup area where you found it. This is a self service task and failure to return the chip will result in a $10 replacement fee. Thank you
Address & Parking
Runners can park at the following address: 431 Williamston Rd. Anderson SC, 29621. There are available parking spots adjacent to the track with a short walk down the ramp to the track gate entrance. Runners can set up anywhere on the inside of the track outside of the 20 meter mark allocated for the timer and the start/finish line.
Upstate Ultra will be offering a meal options for runners looking to grab some grub post run! Every meal will come in a traditional southern meat and three style. We will not be selling meal tickets on race day due to pre-ordering enough supplies for our event staff, volunteers, and the runners who pre-ordered a meal. If you would like to purchase multiple meals for yourself, your crew, or spectators please indicate the number in the quantity box. Cost of a Meal: $7.50
Specifically for this event we will be serving two meals
Saturday Lunch (11am to 2pm)
Saturday Dinner (5pm to 7pm)
We will have a basic aid station at the start/finish line of the race that includes water, tailwind, soda, cookies, crackers, and other sugary fixes! We will order pizza and other hot items throughout the weekend. We gladly accept aid station donations of food items that you like to see at races. Our staff is very busy with course marking, timing, packet pickup, and communication with runners which makes it hard to prepare some amazing tasty treats in-between laps so feel free to contribute a little slice of heaven if you can! Thank you
Cup-less Event: Please provide your own hydration vessel for use at our aid stations
