Wingmates

Your team's Wingmate(s) will be your lifeline for the event! They transport team members and needed equipment to the start line of each race leg and are responsible for extracting racers and their equipment at the end of each leg. Below are important details, driving instructions, and estimated travel times between events to help your Wingmates plan the logistics of getting your team around the course. The order of events for the Full Course and the Sprint Course versions of the Relay vary, so please read the details carefully.

When planning your race day, please include time for drop-off / pick-up into your calculations, especially in the first two exchange zones as there may be extended wait times. We would suggest calculating a minimum of 30 minutes for drop-off times at exchange zones in addition to your drive times.

Wingmates are considered official members of your team and will receive event shirts and awards. Wingmates can be competing or non-competing members of your team. If you are competing with fewer than 7 team members, we suggest that your Wingmates do not compete so they can dedicate the entire day to supporting your team. Larger teams may be able to use competing members as Wingmates, switching off between events. Wingmates will receive VAPPs (Vehicle Access and Parking Permits) that will grant them access to exchange zone vehicle parking areas that are closed to the general public.

Based on your team's circumstances, a second Wingmate might be necessary.

Parking is limited along the course, so we recommend that your athletes travel together as much as possible. We do not guarantee parking for anyone wanting to leave their car at a start location. Please shuttle athletes to and from their cars at suggest parking areas. If you don’t have a support vehicle for your team, check out these sites where you can reserve one.

*** Please note that once your MTB teammate starts their leg, your SUP teammate will also be given the green light to begin their leg simultaneously. It is not required that both MTB and SUP teammates start at the same time. If your SUP teammate does not arrive at the SUP start line before your MTB teammate begins, they will be allowed to start the SUP leg as soon as they arrive. This applies particularly if your MTB or RDR teammate plans to compete in the SUP leg. In this case, your Wingmate will need to bring the MTB or RDR teammate to the SUP start line at Deer Creek Reservoir, only after they have completed the MTB or RDR leg. Timing for the SUP course will not begin until your teammate enters the water.
