1 pm – 7 pm Check in and Packet pick up at Eddie McStiffs. 59 S. Main Street.
All runners must show ID to pick-up their bib. Journeyman Adventures, race timing company, will issue each runner a tag that will indicate you have checked in and will allow you to pick up your bib the morning of the race at the start line. Bibs are given in this manner to ensure the timing company has an accurate list of participants on race day and ensures the safety of each runner.
Saturday, February 15, 2014 – Race Day
We highly encourage carpooling to the start – parking is limited.
Start line/ Gemini Bridges Trailhead Hwy 191: Start line is approximately 13mi north of Moab. There will be parking attendants pointing out parking spots. If you park in an unacceptable location, BLM will issue tickets. Please adhere to parking attendants instructions to avoid tickets and ensure we can continue to work with the BLM for the Red Hot and future events hosted by GrassRoots.
Note: There is no day of race packet pick-up because of the high volume of runners. You must pick up your packet the night before between 1pm-7pm at Eddie McStiffs. You must show your own ID!

There will be a truck designated to transport sweat bags from the start line to the finish line. Please clearly mark your bag with your name to ensure there are no mix ups. It is possible that there will be rain/snow on race day, it is advised that you store your sweats in a waterproof bag. We will make every effort to ensure sweat bags remain dry, but we cannot guarantee it.
Shuttle services: Van shuttles will be starting around 11 with no designated end time, shuttle vans will return runners to their vehicles at start line. If you plan on returning to the finish line you must park at the Gold Bar Campsite area 3 3/4mi up from Poison Spider.
Finish Line: Parking will be located at Gold Bar Campsite area 3 3/4mi past the Poison Spider trailhead. Cars that park on the Potash Road will be asked to be moved to Gold Bar or can be towed at your expense.
There are two shuttles from Gold Bar to finish line it will start at 9:30am. These shuttles will run every 15-20min taking you from Gold Bar to finish line/finish line to Gold Bar.
Post race food & refreshments: There is soup included in the registration for the runners. Please be honest and dont get another bowl for a friend or family member. There will be two food vendors for the spectators convenience and beer for sale in our beer garden. Food will be sold by locally owned vendors: Quesadilla Mobilla and Dillar Dogs. Beer will be sold by GrassRoots Events & Eddie McStiffs at $5.00 for a 16oz cup. You must show ID to get into the beer garden, no beer goes out of the garden so with this in mind we located the beer garden near the live music so you can dance your booty off!
There will be a live DJ playing great fun booty shak’n music all day. At last years finish line runners seem to really enjoy the tunes, so I hired again DJ John to come back to live’n up the atmosphere.
Del Sol will be providing massages for a $1.00 a minute. I would take advantage of this if i just got done running the race. They will provide privacy & warm heaters for your journey of bliss.
