Health & Safety
Participants should be physically capable of completing a chosen course. A recent comprehensive physical examination is recommended for all competitors. It is a good idea to bring a list of current prescription medications and leave it with our first aid staff. First aid equipment and personnel will be stationed in the arena each day.
Be aware of the day's weather. As temperature increases, so does chance of dehydration. Keep well hydrated. We will provide plenty of water in the arena. We will also post any anticipated weather changes in the arena. In the event of dangerous conditions that would halt competition, multiple car horns will be sounded from the arena area. Please leave the courses and return to the arena for a complete accounting of competitors and guests.
New England has a flourishing tick population. Please use insect repellent and appropriate clothing to deter tick bites. You might consider bringing a commercially available tick remover or a pair of tweezers to help remove a stubborn tick.
