As manyof you know, because of restrictions from UDOT (Utah Department of Transportation) and UHP (Utah Highway Patrol) we had to restrict runner crews last year at the Lamb’s Canyon Checkpoint and allow pacer exchanges only. We had a very robust checkpoint with outstanding personal to aid the runners, but runner crews were not allowed. Within a week of the conclusion of the 2016 race Charley Allen, our new committee member responsible for checkpoints, began looking for alternative solutions. He has been assisted in his efforts by Phil Lowry and John Moellmer. The three of them have spent many hours looking at new trails, new routes, and other alternative solutions to this problem. We have had meetings with several government and private land owners. At this time there are no acceptable alternatives available. Therefore, the restrictions we put in place last year at Lamb’s Canyon will remain. Please keep this in mind as you enter the race this year.
At this time NO runner crew will be allowed at Lamb’s Canyon.
We will continue to allow pacer exchanges there, and drop bag service will also be provided. We will continue to explore all other options. The Race Committee is very motivated and anxious to find a reasonable and acceptable solution to this situation.
