2019 Frigid Infliction/Nettle – Update #1

Hello adventure racers!

T-Minus 2 1/2 weeks till race day! Bolton backcountry just got another foot yesterday with more on the way!

A few important details:

FRIGID RACERS SCHEDULE:

Check in will be Friday March 1st anytime 5:30pm-9:00pm. Expect this to take about 20-30 minutes. Verifying gear, filling out medical forms, team picture and picking up race swag!

Pre-race briefing is scheduled for Saturday morning at 4:30am. You’ll want to make sure you’re ready to go by then. Race start is at 5am, with all racers expected to be off course no later than 3pm. Dinner is expected to be served by 4:30pm.

NETTLE RACERS SCHEDULE:

Check in will be Saturday March 2nd from 9-9:45am, followed by the pre-race briefing at 9:45 and mass start at 10am, with all racers expected to be off course no later than 3pm. Dinner is expected to be served by 4:30pm.

FREE NAVIGATION CLINIC:

Friday evening from 8-9pm we will be hosting a free navigation clinic for anyone that wants to hone/refresh some skills before race day. If you’ve never used a compass or looked at a topo map before, it would be good to spend a few minutes learning the basics between now and then. REI has a great video (7 minutes) explaining compass navigation which can be found here: Learn to Navigate With Map And Compass
