The staging area will be at the South Shore Camping Area. Once the riders begin they will follow the road for a mile from the start/finish where there is the cross section between N County Rd 31 and S County Rd 31.

Mission Statement
To bring racers a challenge and opportunity to excel early in the season

Date and Time
February 22, 2014. The actual race will take place at 11:00 PM and will run until approximately 3:00 PM. I would like a full day for set-up and takedown to ensure we both are fully prepared for the riders and spectators and to ensure we clean the course appropriately.

Course map is included in the documents being submitted. The roads will be open although I would like to ask that County Road 31 be closed if at all possible. Traffic plan is being submitted directly by Traffic Masters.

Start/Finish Area
The start and finish will take place on the hill beside the South Shore Campground. The South Shore Campground will serve as a staging area and will have a tent for keeping racers warm, small area for expo booths, parking , additional port-potties and if allowed, food truck. There will be an announcer and this is where the race director will be located for the majority of the time.

Parking will be available at the South Shore Campground area and The Saddle Fawn Hollow Trailhead. I would also like to extend parking as needed to other campground areas. Carpooling will be advised.

Communications between different parties running the race will be maintained through cell-phones and radio. Cell phone numbers will be collected and a sheet including cell-phone numbers and radio channels will be given to the race director, medical staff, police, timing officials, volunteer coordinator and volunteers and any other party on the course who might need to be in contact with others throughout the race.

USA Cycling will sanction Carter Lake Road Race. As such, USA Cycling will provide a $3 million dollar liability insurance that will cover $1 million/incident. The insurance cost will be $3/rider on race day. Larimer County and sponsors will be added to the insurance for a cost of $10/entity.

Traffic Plan
Traffic Masters will certify and submit the traffic plan for the Carter Lake Road Race.
Traffic plan will be carried out accordingly on race day.

Medical Plan
Medical Events Specialist has put together a medical plan for the Carter Lake Road Race and will be contracted to provide the services. Medical resources will include the following:
• Triage Tent with ALS and BLS equipment, cots (2x), warming supplies
• Cardiac monitor (1x), AED (2x)
• Emergency Medical Technician w/IV (2x)
• Paramedic (1x)
• ALS Ambulance including 1 EMT and 1 Paramedic or 2 Paramedics
• Spine Boards (3x)
• Pre-designated helicopter landing zones and known coordinates
• A dedicated radio channel and VHF interoperability capabilities

Carter Lake Road Race would like to have use of the restroom facilities at the South Shore Campground. Once the race numbers exceed their capacity, there will be an additional porta-potty for every 50 people. Spectators will be included in the numbers. At the moment Bertsch Brothers Porta Industries will be supplying the facilities at the cost of $125/unit.

There will be food provided at the staging area either by the race director, sponsors or a food truck. A food permit will be submitted once details of the food being provided have been finalized. Temporary trash bins will be provided.

There will be volunteer coordinator who will be in charge of volunteers. The volunteer coordinator will report to the race director. Volunteers will be used at the start/finish area, along the course to help with traffic, at the feed zone. There will also be volunteers to help with set-up and takedown of the event.

Spectators will either be at the start/finish line or walking along the course. Notification will be given to spectators throughout the day to remain on the side of the racecourse and motor vehicles will be leading the racers through the course and will also make spectators aware that they need to be off the course.

There will be appropriate signage on the course to direct racers, officials, volunteers and spectators. All signage will be taken down within 24 hours of the event.

Notifying the Community
A letter will be drafted and sent to surrounding residents to give notice of the race. It will be sent at least 7 days in advance of the race. It will include details such as the racecourse, race times and any traffic plans they need to be aware of. It will also include a thank-you.
