4:30pm - 7pm - Pasta Feed at MWP Chalet - $8, includes spaghetti (meat and/or veggie), salad and bread from Chef Rick in his 'Hardwax Cafe'.
SATURDAY - The race will be chip timed (Chips on the race bib), and, similar to the Birkie, your chip will be triggered when you cross the chip start line about 100 meters into the race (*see stadium plan below). Therefore, no sweat on when you actually start, but here's the plan.
