In order to reduce trail congestion, racers will start in waves of 25, with each wave separated by two minutes. Racers were placed in waves based on their estimated road 10K paces, with the fastest runners in the earliest waves. (Do NOT expect to match your road pace at QQII.) The first wave will start at 9am and the last wave will start at 9:38 am. Your start time will be posted on Wednesday, 10/24 and can be found via the button below. The participant label on your race bib also includes your start time. Please wear your race number visibly on the front of your torso so we can make sure everyone starts at the correct time.
The course will be clearly marked with Blue/White striped flagging, directional signage and notification signage. The flagging and directional signage will keep you on course. The notification signage will keep you safe. Please take note of the signs warning of the road crossings, dangerous drop-offs and sections of two-way traffic. Short portions of the course have two-way traffic and double traffic, please exercise course etiquette and clear communication when passing.
(1) Immediately before passing another athlete, clearly announce “On your left!” or “On your right!” and then make the pass on that side. (2) If you must listen to music while competing, please wear only one earbud and keep the volume low. During this race, you WILL need to hear what other racers and volunteers are saying. (3) Littering on the course is UNACCEPTABLE, we must leave the trail cleaner than we found it. Please help by carrying any trash you have or find to the next aid station. Aid stations will have trash cans available.
The Lincoln County Ambulance Service will have a crew at the start/finish area. A first aid kit and cell phones will be available at all aid stations. In case of an emergency, locate a cell phone as quickly as possible and call 911. In case of a minor injury, make your way to the closest aid station and ask them to call for a shuttle. If requested, we will gladly refund the entry fee for any participant who stops or delays their race to assist an injured athlete.
The course will remain open until the last athlete finishes. If you need to abandon the race, a pick-up shuttle can be hailed at any aid station.
QQII is a great race - but not an ideal spectator sport. However, your friends and family are invited to join us at the start/finish area.
Awards will be awarded to the top three overall finishers and the top three in ten-year age groups. Results and photos will be accessible from Quivering Quads II Webpage
