General information

  1. TRIENNIAL 2017 is an informal participation event, not sponsored by any individual or organization. It is only for well-conditioned, experienced trail runners. Fitness of the runner to finish their section (physical condition and trail racing experience) is the responsbility of the team captain, organizers take no responsibility. Teams support themselves, the organizers provide no search and rescue, no first aid, no water.
  2. TRIENNIAL 2017 will occur on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Dryden Lake Park. The "course" will consist of eight sections. We will start on the Jim Schug trail before joining the Finger Lakes Trail (FLT); this mile is factored in to each section.
    • EAST 1: Dryden Lake to Babcock Hollow (9.4 Miles)
    • EAST 2: Babcock Hollow to Tone Road (6.8 Miles)
    • EAST 3: Tone Road to Babcock Hollow (6.8 Miles)
    • EAST 4: Babcock Hollow to Dryden Lake (9.4 Miles)
    • WEST 1: Dryden Lake to Route 79 (10.6 Miles)
    • WEST 2: Route 79 to Old 76 Road (5.6 Miles)
    • WEST 3: Old 76 Road to Route 79 (5.6 Miles)
    • WEST 4: Route 79 to Dryden Lake (10.6 Miles)
  3. TRIENNIAL 2017 will be a true relay, team members will be required to pass a "baton". Each team will be self supported; there are no aid stations or event officials. The entire relay will be run at the HONESTY and INTEGRITY of each team to complete the event course as defined.
  4. TRIENNIAL 2017 teams will consist of seven people. Since there are eight sections to cover, one team member will be required to run two sections. This "ultra" section will be up to your team to coordinate, the runner may choose to run two consecutive sections or just run twice.
  5. TRIENNIAL 2017 team roster should be submitted to Karen Ingall of Team Mighty Isis no later than September 10th. Team Roster should include:
    1. Team Name
    2. Name of each runner
    3. Age/Gender of each on event date
    4. Section(s) each is running
    5. Entry fee of $10 each to cover post event food provided by Gorgers, fee for Dryden Lake Pavilion, and non-alcoholic beverages (if anyone prefers to drink alcohol at the finish, please feel free to BYOB). If you intend to bring family or friends who intend to eat with you, please include $10 for each with your roster. No Refunds. Any extra funds received for no shows will be donated to a charity selected by Team Mighty Isis.
  6. TRIENNIAL 2017 will consist of "head start times" calculated by the age/gender of each runner. The calculated head start for each runner will be totaled together and your team will receive the TOTAL HEAD START TIME when your team will begin the relay from Dryden Lake Park. Logistically all teams should finish close together just in time for lunch.
  7. TRIENNIAL 2017 teams of seven runners will all arrive at Dryden Lake Park before their calculated team start time. Each team will start TWO runners (East #1 and West #1) at the same time, both running the one mile portion of Jim Schug trail together. When they reach the Finger Lakes Trail, they will be splitting in opposite directions of the FLT. Both will need to pass a "baton" to their next team member.
  8. TRIENNIAL 2017 winners will earn bragging rights when all 7 team members have finished. There may be a puzzle assembly required, more information to follow.

BONUS Poker Run: Each team is welcome to place $1 per runner in a pot before starting. Each runner will collect a playing card when they finish running. Team with the highest poker hand wins the pot.
