This whole thing is new to me! I went for the first time today and watched all the racers take off! Now I am trying to figure out the website for tracking. I am a bit confused. Has anyone used this yet?
I donít know how this run works. Is there a stopping point, rest stop or time period where people are required to rest for a certain amount of time? I am following a few select people just so see how it works. What happens if they donít make it to a town or village or someplace warm? Do they have gear to sleep outside, or do they have to make it to a place? Or is this what the checkpoints are? Are they rest areas too?
For instance.. I am following team 22 (as one of the many teams I picked to follow). I am following them because they are from Maine and I am curious to see how they do. Anyway.. currently they are overnighting at Puntilla Lake, however both Pro and Trail classes say there isnít a layoverÖ (which to means they can stay there overnight). Why are they there then? Or does layover mean something else?
What is the difference between the pro and trail classes? I thought that rookies went on the trail class, but it looks like there are full rookie teams in the pro class.
Why does the analytics page on the website in the GPS tracking section list days prior to the race?
Team #51 states they "scratched, assisting with trails." What does that mean? They quit to help out?
Ok.. Thanks for all the help! Just trying to figure this all out!
