Start Times / Itinerary

Open start window, from 5-7:30am. Riders will be electronically timed using a RFID chip attached to a number plate which hangs on the handlebars. Please choose your start time based on your expected elapsed time. Planet Ultra suggests the following start times:

5-6:30am* – Pre-dawn starting window: Riders who require more than 15 hours to complete the course. Please remember that checkpoint opening times are generally based on the first-light start – so if you start super early, be prepared to take care of yourself if you get to the first checkpoint before it opens. This probably means carrying a camelbak. Of course, you’ll also have to carry your lights and wear reflective ankle bands on both legs.

6:30-7am: All riders who require 13-15 hours to complete the double century. Please sleep in a bit more if you can complete the course in under 15 hours!

7-7:30am: Riders who require 10-13 hours to complete the double century.

7:30am: If you plan to complete the course in under 10 hours, you MUST start at 7:30am.

**PLEASE NOTE: Checkpoint opening and closing times are based on the first-light start time of 6:30am. If you’re a fast rider, and you start early, you’ll probably beat us to the first and the second checkpoints. Remember, the pre-dawn start times are meant for those riders who really need the extra time.
