Â once course is set, details of each obstacle will be published prior to event and volunteers will be well versed with guidelines as needed, and to officiate proper completion. You cannot leave an obstacle till your 4 have completed it, and cannot start another obstacle without all team members present.
- If for some reason, 4 of your 5 team members cannot complete an obstacle you will be disqualified from official standings, and will surrender timing chips to that obstacle volunteer, but can continue on the course and finish as desired. There will be some obstacles (village rig, etc) that may have a penalty lap as an alternative, as in the main race, to which you whole team will have to complete together.
- Part of the course will finish on the main course and there will be traffic still on course, just negotiate around said traffic, and you will be given priority at obstacles when team arrives.
