UDAM - More Info

UDAM100 Credentials:
-Highest gains ultra (Barkley + Hardrock + DRTE + Wickham Park)
-Lowest finisher ultra (0)
-Closest name to an expletive without being one (Damn)
-100% Asphalt (100%)
-0% Flat (0%)
-No restrictions on the use of metal spikes (Spikes in yo face!)
-Least relevance to the event it commemorates (Basically zero)

Here is a preliminary course map of one loop of the course:

The entry fee for the run will be $8, and a penny will be refunded to the runner for each successfully completed lap. Because of this, all entries must be paid in pennies, and the runner must carry their refunds with them as they progress along the course or else face disqualification.

Awards - There are two categories in the UDAM100. The first is for runners who complete the entire race. These runners will receive a pizza, a trophy, a pizza trophy, and a half gallon of Extreme Moose Tracks from Safeway. They will also receive the belt buckle depicted in the logo. The second category will be the 1/8 mile (1 loop) wimp out option. This achievement will be commemorated by a photocopy of the race logo with the appropriate distinction engraved.

In order to increase the competitive spirit of the race, runners who have never completed the 100 mile distance will be allowed to trip other competitors once they pass the furthest distance they have previously run.

The run will take place on the 4th of July so we can commemorate the suffering of those who fought for our independence and realize this is nothing like it.

Entry will be determined by the flip of a coin. Heads means you are in, and tails means you are not.

The cutoff for the UDAM100 is 206 hours (Barkley + Hardrock + DRTE + Wickham Park).

Race headquarters will be located at the A.

Qualifications: The qualifications for this race are dynamic, and may change up to the day of the race. You may only start the race if qualified. On the morning of the race when the race starts at the stroke of Midnight, the color of the A will determine the qualifications as follows:
Yellow/Gold - All comers (if you can breathe you can start, and if not, you can still try)
Maroon - You must have run any distance in the past.
Maroon and Gold - You must be wearing ASU attire.
U of A colors - Same as Maroon and Gold, but the A must be repainted Maroon and/or Gold before any laps are counted.
White - Signifying purity, runners must compete barefoot.
Anything Else - Barkley + Hardrock + DRTE + Wickham Park

Any questions can be directed to RD Nick Coury.
