New Cutoffs for 100K and Runner Limit for Half Marathon

Starting with the 2015 edition of the Wild Duluth 100K, we are instituting new cutoff times.  We believe these new cut offs will make things more clear for runners and race management and help ensure that our volunteers are not overly inconvenienced with super late nights out helping our runners.  We have great volunteers and we know they'd be happy to stay out all night and help our runners, but we don't want to burn them out and we want them to continue to have fun helping you achieve your goals.  We also believe this will improve runner and volunteer safety.

We are keeping the turn around cut-off the same, adding a cut-off at Highland/Getchell Aid Station and shortening the cut-off at Magney Snively Aid Station by a half hour. 

New 100K Cut-offs:

3:00 p.m. - Chambers Grove turnaround Aid Station
7:30 p.m. - Magney Snively Aid Station
9:30 p.m. - Highland/Getchell Aid Station

We are also imposing a 150 runner limit on our Half Marathon.  We also believe this will improve runner safety.  The Half Marathon poses the greatest risk to runners crossing the many roads and streets in our race due to the increased speed of the runners, tighter packs and perhaps more heated competition.  We believe that we need to limit the Half Marathon to 150 runners to help ensure runner safety.  We will continue to monitor the Half Marathon for safety concerns and will continue to offer this distance if we believe we can do so in a safe manner.  At this time, there will be no runner limits for the 50K and 100K races.
