Lining Up – 100 mile Start

Armory Park Address – 221 South  6th Ave  Tucson AZ

100 Mile Start Time is 7am

Line up according to your expected finish time in one of the four medallion categories. Posted signs will identify each area.

NO FENCE JUMPING.  Some cyclists arrive as early as 3:00am to line up in front of their section.  Respect those who arrive early and do not jump the fence.  Late arrivals who jump the fence will be disqualified.

How to STAY WARM while you wait for the start time:  get sweatshirt/pants from your favorite thrift store to wear over your kit.  A few minutes before the start, toss them over the railing.  A crew will pick up all the tossed clothes which will be given to a charity thrift store.  DO  NOT LEAVE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SEE AGAIN!
