So the SCORE site is saying the race starts Thursday the 16th and then awards on the Sat the 18th.
Unless I missed something that only gives 48 hrs to run the coarse and that puts you in on sat 12 noon if you start at noon Thursday.
Do you think there is a typo and that awards are on Sunday the 19th, trying to plan hotels and flights for family.
Thanks .
Last time the 1000 was 1300 miles there was a 56 hr time limit ???

With is being mentioned as around 1200 miles, and a 25 mph average seems to be the current speed they figure time limits on, then 48 hours would be about right.

If you don't finish until the 48th hour chances are you're not getting an award anyway.

Yeah the dates look off. Does that mean contingency is on Wednesday this time?

I could be mistaken but the 2014 run I thought was a 40 hour time limit. we had hours of downtime and barley finished in time at 38 hours I believe.

It was also posted that Tech would likely be two days, Tuesday the 14th and Wednesday the 15th
