I am not all that fast. For example I started yesterday around 8000 and went to 10880 feet in 6 miles. Up was slow down was fast. 7 hrs. with 20 min for lunch.

Looking for someone to do this race with me. I am planning on doing 7 to 9 hrs. on the first loop and then get some sleep. Do another 7 hrs. in the morning.

I can pay for your registration and have a local camp site for the week prior to the event.

Planning to do the Nav-x 100 lakes 6 hr. a few days before the 24 hr. and can provide transportation there if you want.

I might be a fit. Pretty good at the navigation (been orienteering since 1975) but old and slow. I did get around ok (almost all walking, a tiny amount of slow jogging) in a 7 hour rogaine last month in Pa. and in a 12 hour rogaine in Indiana last September. But didn’t really feel up for a 24 (have gained 20 lbs during the pandemic) so signed up for the 4 hour at Tahoe. However your planned schedule of two mostly-day shifts on the go sandwiched around a pretty good sleep sounds like something I could handle! I’m sure they would let me upgrade to 24. If you want to further discuss the possibility of teaming up and don’t have a better offer (I won’t be offended if you do), contact me at the email address in my Attackpoint profile (click on “o-maps” while you are logged in to AP). I’m not seeing an email in your profile.

Hi - also old and slow MUV with lots of rogaining experience. Can do night work. Usually go full 24 without hash house stop, but post pandemic have only been doing gym workouts and short 5 milers plus one 24 hr. so steep terrain conditioning level is ? Did a 9 hr loop plus a 4 hr loop at Sprague with my daughter and son in law end of May, no problem but that was flat terrain. Tahoe areas under consideration are far from flat. Would prefer doing one loop for as long as it is fun and then calling it a day but seeing the map will determine whether a second loop is much more than a long hike over previously visited terrain.
If the tamarack fire is still flling the area with high smoke levels it’s a no go for me, but I am already registered (Team Ames, but Peter had to drop out this last week so no partner.
I’m fine with any number of team mates, 2 to 5 OK by me.
Pluses are experience, familiar with Tahoe terrain from multiple previous rogaines, really easy to get along with. Minuses are slow (no jogging, thanks) especially uphill, don’t do smoke and in it for just doing it, not medals.
