Last Man Standing Race 

Saturday & Sunday, March 26-27, 2022

Beclabito Baptist Church @ Beclabito Chapter, New Mexico

 

Welcome to Beclabito!

 

The first-ever Last Man Standing event on the Navajo Nation will begin at 8:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 26 at Beclabito Baptist Church.  The event will end….whenever the “last man” is the final and only runner still competing.

 

LAST MAN STANDING RULES

 

  • Each loop will be a tad over four (4) miles on the Troy Tom Trail course, beginning and ending at the church.
  • Each lap begins at the top of the hour, with the first lap starting at 8:00 a.m.  
  • All runners must start with the bell at the top of the hour.  
  • As long as a runner completes the lap in under 60 minutes, they advance to the next round.  If they do not make the 60 minute cut-off, they will not continue to the next round.
  • The final finisher must complete a final lap under one hour after the second to final finisher has dropped or failed to make the cut.
  • There will be no aid stations on the course.  There will be light food and drink at the start/finish.  There will also be fire barrels at the area.
  • Runners are allowed and encouraged to bring your own cot, chair, food and drinks or other personal items (various layers of clothes, shoes and socks) that you would like to have at the start/finish area.  They may set up a cot or rest area, but must be ready to go at the top of the hour.  Tents may be set up near the trailhead area, and parking for participants will be available close to the start/finish.
  • There will be minor medical care at the hogans.


 

LOCATION: The staging area, including both start and finish for each lap, will be at the Beclabito Baptist Church.  The church is located directly off Hwy 64 at the large white church sign.  The church is 2 miles east of the Beclabito Chapter House/Sinclair gas station, and 15 miles west of Shiprock.  You may park in the church lot, which will give you easy access to your vehicle/camp on each lap.

 

REGISTRATION – Online registration for Last Man Standing is now open through noon on Thursday, March 24 at the NavajoYES website: www.navajoyes.org   T-shirt sizes will be guaranteed on registrations through March 12.

 

PACKET PICK-UP – Up to one hour before the races: 7:00 a.m.

 

BAGGAGE DROP – There will be a bag drop at a safe, dry location at the start/finish area near the Church Trailhead.  Runners will have access to their personal bags – and their vehicles – throughout the day.

 

COURSE – [Courses for the races are subject to change, based upon the discretion of race organizers and the weather.]

The main course will be a loop that will be just a tad more than four (4) miles, beginning at the Church Trailhead and heading a bit over two miles up the Troy Tom Trail.  The route is primarily singletrack, with some of the course on an old wagon route.  There is some sand, and a couple rocky sections.  The return will be slightly downhill ending back at the church trailhead area.  Runners will follow the permanent trail markings, and there will be some additional, reflective markings added to the route. 

The loop nature of the events will allow runners to have regular access to their personal kit and to course support.  The start/finish area will include lights food items, fluids, minor medical, fire barrels for warmth and a drop-bag area.

In all that we do, we whole-heartedly adhere to the principles of Leave No Trace ethics.  Our goal is to leave a cleaner trail than when we arrived.  We strive to share with our participants and volunteers this respect for our natural landscapes and the amazing lands of Dine’ Bikeyah where we all love to play.

 

AWARDS & GEAR – All participants receive a race t-shirt and ongoing event support for as long as they are participating.  All runners who complete 24 hours will receive a special award.    The grand prize, naturally, goes to the “last man standing” – an award to both the final male and final female runner.

 

COVID GUIDELINES – The race will abide by COVID guidelines as laid out by the Health Command & Operations Center.

Runners must wear a mask when picking up their race packet and when around the start/finish area.  There will be sanitizer stations throughout the race venue, and we request that all runners, spectators and volunteers practice social distancing.  There will be one minimal aid station with gels and water, to minimize risk.  We will have snack boxes to-go at the finish line, and request that runners not linger at the finish line.  Thank you for your cooperation.
