The Drift 100 Evacuation Reminders:
In the event a racer is unable to finish the race or if they miss an aid station cutoff, they will be taken off the course via snow machine. It may not be possible to evacuate from the course immediately. Be prepared to wait for hours outside!! Racers will initially be taken to a heated aid station first and taken to the finish line as able. New this year: no racers will be taken back to the finish after dark. Racers will be taken to an aid station and then to the finish the following day. Obviously, there are exceptions for medical emergencies. As always people take priority over gear! Please be patient. Reminder: All racers evacuated from the 100-mile course are REQUIRED to pay $200. Exceptions: if you turn around at Strawberry Safety Shelter and return to the finish via CD trail on your own. Please check out at the finish with race staff (at Kendall Valley Lodge) Racers will not be permitted to leave the course on non-race snow machines.
Before you call it quits…you have 48 hours. Rest. Eat. Drink. Walk (push, stumble, flail) on.
13 mile Drifters will only be required to bring a blinkie and bib. Recommended gear is still recommended. Please make good decisions.
28 mile: No change
100 mile: Goggles are required! no sunglasses, glacier glasses, or “I tried this once in a blizzard and it worked”. Also cup and spoon are now required. We will not provide dishes at the aid stations. Bring your own please.
