Spartan Sprint team heat is 10:15am!

Exciting news – we officially have 253 people signed up for the New England Spartan Race on August 10th, with another 50 for the Sunday event, on August 11th.

This means we have our very own, dedicated team wave time – and Spartan Race have confirmed that this will be 10:15am. Sunday is 10:30am (not a dedicated wave).

Because we are locking this team wave out – we will be shooting a group photograph AT THE START LINE shortly after 10am – once the previous wave has left. If you aren’t there, you won’t be in it. Elites and Hurricane Heat participants should be in, and even if you aren’t planning on running again, come on over for the group photo!

Some FAQs:

Elite wave runners, and people who paid for a dedicated time will NOT have been moved. You need to request this.

Hurricane Heat runners will be in in time. Do NOT worry about doing HH and the wave back to back – you will be fueled by adrenaline, and this will be EVEN more epic.

Kids race is noon to 1pm both days. If you need to be back, contact Spartan about moving your wave ASAP.

I offered to volunteer! Thats ok – Email us@spartanrace.com *immediately* with “Amesbury 8/10” or “Amesbury 8/11” in the subject line, include your full name and explain your situation.

I’m not in the team wave, and want to be! Email us@spartanrace.com *immediately* with “Amesbury 8/10” or “Amesbury 8/11” in the subject line, include your full name and the team wave information.

If you CANNOT make the 10:15am wave, due to a scheduling issue with the elite wave or the kids wave or for ANY other reason, you need to *immediately* email us@spartanrace.com and include “Amesbury 8/10” in the subject line. In the email, you should include:

  1. First and last names of the racers needing to change
  2. What  heat they need to change to.

This move will not cost you anything, and as long as you are moving later in the day, it is not usually a big problem. Expect a response within 24 hours.

Last resort – you can do this on race day at the registration tent.

If you find you need to move to Sunday, you need to *immediately* email us@spartanrace.com and include “Amesbury 8/10” in the subject line. In the email you should include:

  1. First and last names of the racers needing to change
  2. What Sunday heat they need to change to.

This move will cost you a $14 insurance charge per racer, as this is not transferable from day to day.

What happened to the “newbie” wave? With our team being as big as it is, we are all running together. New racers will NOT be alone, and it is your call to stick with them, or go for time.
