Gauntlet 9 Info Dump!

Gauntlet 9 Info Dump!

This is an attempt to give a massive info dump for Saturday. Here are your heat assignments:

The event will be run “Shotgun Cannonball” style. Meaning once your heat starts you will work straight through 3 events covering 3 different locations over the course of 90 minutes. A new heat will start every 30 minutes. Each event from start to finish will last around 30 minutes. NOTE – this includes travel time to the event. The longest distance will be going from event 2 (across the street) to event 3 (levee) approximately 4 blocks away (6 minute walk) .

In order to make this happen we will be running a tight timeline with lots of moving pieces and people. We need your help to be on time, be where you’re supposed to be, prepared, ready, and flexible with us. Our goal is to give you guys an unforgettable and fun competition.

This is the timeline:

Here is a boring/lengthy video describing our planning process going into the event – but it does do a good job of describing the event and all the moving pieces going into it.

Area Layout – See below on where to park and where you can setup.

Event Layout – see below for the area of operations

Saturday Morning: If you’re in heats 1-3 (Fast Exerciser) you need to be here registered by 0800 for the Master Briefing covering the description and standards for the events. We have already released Event 1 Video on the Event FB page and will be releasing the remaining ones this week. PLEASE watch them and post your questions to the comments. The better prepared you guys are coming into the event the better/smoother it will be everyone.

Heats 4-5 (Not So Fast Exerciser) be here no later than 1 hour before your designated start time. You’ll need to check in and register and you can watch some of the heats ahead of you to get a good feel.
