Event Information

A challenging 10K trail race in beautiful Nolde Forest with a unique age graded start. What’s an age graded start? Those who have more than a few of grey hairs or have yet to hit puberty will get a head start based on age and gender. Typically the oldest female wave starts first. Then the next wave will start, based on 5 year age groups, working back toward the younger (faster?) folks. Wave starts will bounce back and forth between sexes, as the handicap derived from the World Masters Association dictates. The actual handicap for each division is posted at www.PagodaPacers.com and will be declared final for 2013 a month prior to start. That means you start with your age group (call them your competition if you like). Your handicap division may or may not start with another handicap division. For example, it’s possible that 60-64 year old men might start at the same time as 50-54 year old women. Or maybe not.
