The information below may be from a previous edition of the event, and is subject to change.

  1. NO LATE STARTS. Budget your time to get to Black Canyon City and catch the shuttle if you are running the 1/2 marathon. You must start ahead of the sweep in order to receive a finish time.

  2. NO HEADPHONES. This is a safety issue. While we at Shendo Cat Racing generally discourage using headphones while racing, it is particularly pertinent at Black Canyon.  This course consists almost entirely of singletrack with a ton of exposure. You need to be aware of your surroundings. When you pass someone you, they need to be able to hear you coming. If you are near a rattlesnake – you need to hear its warning!  If you are found wearing headphones at any time you sacrificed to the gremlins. NO EXCEPTIONS. (P.S.  no one wants to hear your music blaring from a speaker either).
