Highline Lake State Park would like for all participants planning for the 18 Hours of Fruita @ Highline to be aware of a few items that allows the park staff to keep the event at 100 teams.
The parks biggest limitation is parking and areas to camp. Please carpool to future events if at all possible. Parking by your campsite is limited so the following will be in effect as long as you don’t bring an RV. Teams bringing an RV may not bring any vehicles other than the RV in to park in the campground. Each solo and 2 person team will be limited to 1 vehicle (or one RV) and all 4 person or larger teams will be limited to 2 vehicles (or one RV). ALL ADDITIONAL VEHICLES WILL BE CHARGED A VEHICLE PASS. All 4 person teams or larger will be located in the campground and there will be at least 2 teams in every campsite. All solo and 2 person teams will be placed in the day use areas and will not have fire pits, so these teams will not be able to have camp fires. Also, no cars are allowed to park on the grass anywhere in the park; those ignoring this directive will be subject to a citation as this has been constantly abused.
Please limit the numbers of trailers and plan more tent camping to ease congestion in the campground. Each team will be limited to 1 camping trailer per team. ALSO, any team bringing trailers need to contact the park ahead of time to arrange this, as failure to do so will result in the trailer being parked outside the campground in the boat ramp parking lot. ALL additional trailers, over the one per team allotment will be placed in the boat ramp parking area based on space availability.
If you are bringing ANY type of CAMPER, RV, etc, you need to contact the park DIRECTLY with this information with your team name and size BY APRIL 20th. This is imperative for their planning-their contact information is (970) 858-7208 and email email@example.com
We want to thank you in advance for your cooperation and look forward to another great event.
Check-in for the “18 Hrs of Fruita” at Highline Lake State Park, 6-10 pm. Race starts promptly at 12 midnight, Friday and finishes Saturday evening, 6 pm-race and enjoy New Belgium Brewing, taco party and more!!!!
Directions – Drive west on I-70 west from Grand Junction to Loma Exit, then north onto Colorado Highway 139 for six miles to Q Road. Go west on Q road for 1.2 miles, turn north onto 11.8 Road for one mile to the park entrance. (970) 858-7208.
Camping in the park is included in the entry fee for team members only (Friday and Saturday night). All teams and solos’ will be placed in the shaded and grassy areas of Highline Park. Pay Showers are available. Camping from SUNDAY on… must be made through Colorado State Parks. Spectators and family members will be charged $7/car to enter the park as well as a camping fee if they are planning to stay.
Camping is available from Friday, 1 pm-Sunday, 10 am. ALL TEAMS MUST KNOW THEIR TEAM NAME & TEAM SIZE UPON ARRIVAL AS THEY WILL BE DIRECTED TO CAMPING BASED ON THAT INFORMATION-REMEMBER, THE EVENT BEGINS AT NIGHT, WHICH COULD CAUSE SOME DELAYS IN FINDING YOUR CAMPING SPOT!
Park Rangers will be available to assist you in locating your campsite beginning at 1 pm, Friday (which has been pre-assigned based on team size). Please do not arrive earlier and park anywhere as they will have to relocate you which will potentially cause delays for you and other teams. Please adhere to their instructions.
ALL Campsites are within 50-150 yards of the start/finish/party area. SOLO’S will be placed closest and adjacent to the course.
Course is a 7+ mile loop (approximately) run counter clockwise-for specific course information, please contact Over The Edge Sports in Fruita at 970 858-7220 as they are the course directors. To see the trails within the park go to www.parks.state.co.us
We will have JKF Catering on site to aid in your food planning. They will begin serving Friday, 2 pm and will serve into the early evening. On Saturday, breakfast service begins at 5 am and they will be open throughout the day. Please help support their business as they will be serving our “free” post-race beef, chicken and pork taco bar with all condiments to all race participants.
www.SkiPix.com will be taking pictures of racers along the course. Please visit their site after the event to view your pictures.
Additional rules or changes may be added as questions arise, so please continue to check this site for updates. Captains will receive a set of rules at check-in.
For safety reasons, the event reserves the right to cancel or change a portion of the course if inclement weather or dangerous conditions exist. If cancelled, final results will be based on completed laps at the time the event was called.
Minimum Age Requirement: All participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian sign the waiver. Additionally, all participants under the age of 18 must have a parent, legal guardian, or designated person present on site for the duration of the event. Participants must be a minimum of 14 years of age.
The 18 hrs of Fruita will use chip timing in 2013. We ask that all team’s test their chips at the timing tent prior to the start of the event once you have checked in.
Finish Order is determined by number of laps, then time. Teams/Solo’s must complete their race within the 18 hour time limit-any laps finished after the 18 hour time limit WILL NOT count toward the total. No laps may start after the official finishing hour. Teams and solo’s may choose to stop and rest at anytime during the event but must re-enter where they originally exited. The team/solo (in its category) with the most laps is first. If teams have the same number of laps, the team that took less time within the above guidelines, wins.
Solo’s and teams may finish their race at any time during the 18 Hrs and will be credited with laps completed to that point to determine placing but must ride at least 6 laps to qualify for awards.
Numbers may not be cut, folded, altered or defaced in any way. All protests must be filed within 15 minutes of preliminary results posting. All signed, official results are FINAL. No protests will be accepted, nor will results be adjusted after the event. Athletes must be in attendance at the awards ceremony to receive their awards. Awards will not be mailed. Printed results will be overall places and lap times.
