Information for the Chequamegon 100
The Pre-Race meeting & pasta feed will be taking place at Lakewoods Resort, on Country Highway M, outside of Cable, starting at 6pm on Friday evening. You will be able to pick up your race packet, get a good meal, and hear any last minute details about the event. It is highly recommended that you attend.
Look for the Wolftooth Components tent to get your number plate on race morning if you were not able to attend the Friday night meeting. It will be available from 6:00am to 7:50am.
You will receive a Ziploc bag with your number plate and other items, and it is your drop bag for 100 mile riders. Due to people bringing abnormally large items, your items for the drop point must fit in this bag. On race morning, you will be directed to put them in the back of a truck for transport to the 60 mile point. There are no drop bags for the 62 mile race.
The 100 mile race will start at 7am, on Rock Lake Road just across from Lakewoods. The 62 mile will start at 8am, on Rock Lake Road just across from Lakewoods
The course will be fully marked with tape and arrows. The trails are open to the public, and roads are still open and in use by cars. Because of this, not every intersection is taped, but all are marked clearly with directions. The GPX files are also available for download.
These are Public Dropbox links. Because they are direct files, you will need to Right Click -> Save As to save the file to your computer, and then upload it to your device. If you just click the link you will get a webpage with jibberish.
There is active logging on Hatchery Creek, and due to that, there may be re-routes in that area. On any trails south of Mosquito Brook Road, you will need to know that route markers and signs are CORRECT, and your cue sheets and/or GPS may be wrong. This is because we are trying to use as much trail as possible, but we may not know how much we can use until Friday.
There is water available at Hatchery Creek checkpoint on the 100 mile course. It is the only tested, reliable water source. There is no reliable water source on the 62 mile course. There are untested water sources possible at Namekagon Town Hall, Telemark resort, and Highway 00 crossing, but they are not guaranteed, and use at your own risk
We have adopted an Android-based timing system this year. When you finish, check in at the Wolftooth Components tent to have your time recorded. Results will be posted online via Webscorer.com very soon after the race is complete.
Please join us at the Rivers Eatery for pizza and beer. Fastest racer hugs and some swag will be presented at 7pm. Then sit around the campfire with us, have another beer, and be glad that you enjoyed a full day of Type 2 fun.
SEE YOU THIS WEEKEND!
