Pre-race Meeting

There will be a pre-race meeting at 6:30 AM at City Beach for all competitors. The meeting will provide participants with the most up-to-date information on the race course and a review of all safety precautions. IT IS MANDATORY FOR All PARTICIPANTS TO ATTEND THIS MEETING. The buses leave at 7am and The Glacier Challenge begins with the 8 mile run leg at 7:30 AM.




It is important for all participants to have their race bib visible for timekeepers to see. The timing chip is afixed to the bib so the bib needs to be visible on the front of your shirt. Do not crumple the bib. You should only cross a timing mat when finishing a leg.
