New Date: Sugar Scramble 16 Sept

New Date: Sugar Scramble 16 Sept

Postby Rage » Thu Aug 30, 2012 9:09 am

The new date for the Sugar Scramble is September 16. This is on the same day as Iowa's Best Dam Triathlon which uses Sugar Bottom Road in the bike leg. Please avoid the back route and use Dubuque Street / Mahaffey Bridge Road on race day to avoid potential conflicts or delays from the triathlon participants.

We're making a few minor adjustments as well, which include:

- Updated course maps (just some slight tweaks)
- New start time for the 11:00am "wave" - now going to be at 12:00pm (updated schedule here http://sugarbottomscramble.com/?page_id=34)
- Kids race (9 & under) will be an untimed time trial start rather than a mass start

*Online Registration*
Online registration is now back up and available at USA Cycling https://www.usacycling.org/register/2012-3273.
Anyone who registered online will be carried over to the 16th date. If you registered previously and are unable to make the 16th date, let us know and we can process a refund for you.

Thanks to everyone for your patience and continued interest in trying to do a makeup date this year.

See you all on the 16th!

I just tried to register for the scramble but get the following error from the usacycling page:
The Cross Country Men 10-99 Cat 3 race's date has already passed and has been removed from your cart.

The race page says registration is back up, is it to late to reg?

No, not too late. We'll have registration open for a couple of weeks. Not sure why it's not working correctly, I'll look into it and get back to you.

Thanks for letting us know!

The race route will be the same as we discussed before. The maps online may not be updated however.

Sport, Comp and Expert
Starting at the shelter going east up the gravel road to 201, 202, 205, 301(no peninsula), 304, 105(go by the shelter), 101, 102, 101, 104, 101, back up to 201 and do it all over. Sport is 1.5 laps, Comp is 2.5 laps, Expert is 3.5 laps. This is a 1/2 lap shorter than last year but there are 2 black trails this time.

The start times for the Sport, Comp, and Expert were moved to 12:00, they were 11:00 originally.

Everything seemed to go smoothly with the reschedule with one exception, we were unable to get a food vendor. Anyone want to grill some burgers? If there is enough interest we could probably go into town and get some pizza's. I believe there will be bananas and such available free from New Pi, but otherwise might be a good idea to bring some post race food.

Just a reminder to avoid Newport/Sugarbottom Road to get to the Scramble tomorrow.

Tomorrow the Iowa's Best Dam Triathlon will use Sugar Bottom Road in the bike leg. Please avoid the back route and use Dubuque Street / Mahaffey Bridge Road on race day to avoid potential conflicts or delays from the triathlon participants.
