Paine to Pain Expands to Six Waves

Twin Lakes
A view of the trail in Twin Lakes taken this May, just past mile 11.

Due to high demand, we are expanding Paine to Pain from 4 waves (5 min apart) to 6 waves (4 min apart).

We will continue to place roughly 150-175 in each wave to avoid bottlenecks on the trail.

And you know what? Even with that, we may well sell out given the huge increase in registrations we have seen over past years.

So, if you or your friends have not yet registered, I would strongly suggest passing this note to them so that they don’t get shut out. [Register here]

You’ll find a description of our wave management system on this page.  You will see a description of how we avoid bottlenecks by spreading like-speed runners in different waves. Dumping all of the 9-10 minute milers into one wave would, obviously, defeat the purpose of waves.
