“CUT TIME in TBT25”

Spent some time to pick ITRA of runners who reach “late” cpA
We consider 8hours as safe time to manage TBT25, everything over 8 hours can turn to troubles as past years showed. This year were perfect weather condition.

here is some statistic:

• most of runners with ITRA under 350 did finish over 8 hours
• most of runners with ITRA over 350 came to cpA before 10am

ITRA is not dogma, but only one factor which organizers may know about participants, about YOU. ITRA PI do not say how your perform in various weather condition (hot,humid, muddy) or how well enjoy technical course.

Many of you talk about unfair of cut time for ADVENTURER and ELITE. Cut time is for safety only, we don`t mind if you finish over cut time in finish line. But safety first.

However TBT25 cut time was not suppose be in cpA, but in WFR c. 1.3km before cpA. After this statistic we will change WFR cut time at 9:15am (in bad weather earlier) (for slow runners take 30~45minutes reach cpA from this point)

to keep safety and avoid trail jam we will set approximately:
ELITE – ITRA PI of 380+ start 6:30
ADVENTURER – ITRA PI of 330+ (350+ recommended) start 7:00

*if not any ITRA record need contact us as many runners did this year. Similar for Formosa Trail 40km, you need ITRA-1 or contact us.

**fast runners has to be sure sign up for ELITE, awards (top7) are based on ranking in finish, not ranking given by net racing time.

You love TBT or hate it, often both!
Future of classics TBT is not so bright. We have to do some course, venue and logistic changes or not held TBT anymore. Lets hope we will find way…
