This year’s race on all fronts.

The race actually at check-in on Friday when went through a rock prologue at Planet Rock Gym. Each team climbed a route on the wall and the accumulated a total time. The team in each category set the line and every team after that time was off the starting line by that

It was a unique way to kick off the 2010

After check-in teams their maps and instructions for the race. Then they had UTM and map details to copy over to maps. At 9pm the race briefing was where full details of the were covered.

After that, teams free for the night to make preparations for the race start at

Saturday morning teams arriving on the west end of Center for the paddling start. Teams up in order of their prologue and at 8am they were off. The start had teams starting the first ten minutes of the race.

It may not made or broke any team’s but it was difficult for some of the last to watch as the rest of the field off while they waited for start time to come. made their way east Center Lake and the chain of all the way to Little Wolf Lake for the out at CP7/TA1. There was some involved in this section, but in the of the day with teams still together, no one got thrown off by too much.

paddling distance neared 15 The lead teams cracked the 3 mark and finished paddling before 11am.

At TA1 the teams on to their mountain bikes for a paved and dirt road section. The course would teams east and north roughly 30 miles. Included in section was short section of track on a new trail at Sharon along the Raisin River.

The took teams north the of the way to the Mill Lake Outdoor in Waterloo Rec Area for TA2. The completed this section in two to three hours and the field was within a couple hours front to back. That not be the case after the next

TA2 or CP17 was a transition to trekking teams were preparing for a 15 orienteering course in Waterloo Rec Teams had 1:20,000 OCAD for this section and separate In total there were 16 out there to be found.

At this it was reaching the middle of the afternoon and it was a hot and day with temps near 90 and humidity. That would a role in the race. Not all of the CPs were for this section though and were encouraged to leave enough time to get on to the rest of the That was not much of a concern for the top however. Running Free off the O-Course first with all the CPs at after 5pm.

EMS was about 15 back making up some and Untamed New England was about 40 back of them. Also in the was Hafke Legal Services, Bayou-River Rats and Michigan Addicts as they all picked up all 16 CPs

Back at the same TA, now TA3, transitioned onto bikes for one of the of the race. The next section was a 25 mile leg, almost on two track and single track, on the famous Poto Trail in Rec Area. The lead teams found a “bonus” section in the of the single track with 3 remote checkpoints to be obtained by

Teams had to reach these by midnight in order to even them and they would be a stage in the race. Only a of teams even reached the section in time. Running was forced to withdraw shortly leaving TA3 in the lead due to cramping related to the heat. EMS, now the race and Untamed New England got all three CPs in the bonus section.

Bayou and Hafke both the bonus section between and 10pm right as it was getting Hafke had some bad luck on the ride getting several tires and were just taken by Blue Bayou into the bonus section. teams got the first two points in the section and then Blue made a strategic decision to the third point and head off on bike. Hafke stuck it and headed after the third point.

That point elusive and costly as Hafke another hour and a half without finding it. Untamed had a biking leg and pulled ahead of EMS into TA4 by just 10 minutes. were not even out of the TA before EMS in.

These two teams had a solid and a half lead on the rest of the field and would continue to it out on the O-course. Blue Bayou, Against the Cutoff, JEAR/Chrysler-Jeep, and Michigan Racing Addicts the lead pack.

At TA3, teams were for another O-course. This it was a 1:15,000 scale OCAD map in Rec Area with a total of 12 CPs As teams arrived right at this section would be completely through the night. A few of the teams on the course were it as the sun rose. That led to the challenge of O-course.

This was also the where the separation of the teams showed. Many of the teams with little or no time to this O-course. Those had some time could themselves with night skills.

EMS and Untamed battled the night on the O-course and by day break EMS back with all 12 CPs, but was unable to locate Point 9 one CP off the lead. Blue Bayou six CPs in their limited time on the as did Rage Against, while and Hafke only had time for

Back to the TA, now TA4, teams to trek east to the Huron They would have a couple points, one on the top of Peach on this short segment was only about 5 miles. two points, CP34-35, were so they could be skipped if were running out of time.

At the end of the teams found themselves at the River preparing for a 10 mile downstream. TA5 was at the end of the paddle and then it was a short 5 mile bike leg that back into Rock in Ann Arbor for the finish. paddle and bike sections relatively straight forward and positions were pretty defined by that point.

Still it was good push the finish.

The teams certainly all got money out of this course. It until after 9am when the teams started to roll in and the teams all finished less two hours prior to the cutoff. It was EMS took home the title with all CPs (33) and a finish of 11:05am. Untamed New England was (first 2 Person) with 32 CPs at

Fighting off some mid race problems, Hafke Legal still had a strong finish for 6th with 20 CPs at 11:22am.

Congratulations to all the that came out to challenge at the Rage. The heat and humidity intensified this challenge as did the horseflies! Fortunately, teams got relief from the heat on night.
