For planning arrival date/time, will the middle event on Saturday start in the morning or afternoon?
We haven't set the start time yet but will do that very soon, and will get the times up online. Thank you for bringing it to our attention that people want to know for planning purposes!
Start times have now been set for both Ottawa O-Fest events. First starts for the Middle will be at 1:00 pm on Saturday. First starts for the Long will be at 10:00 on Sunday morning. We hope this allows people to have some flexibility in making their travels plans for the weekend.
A reminder that the Long event will have a Chase start component to it. First finishers from Saturday's Middle will be first starters on Sunday. This way, the first person across the finish line is the overall winner for the two days. In the past we have done a chase start per course, not per class. After a certain time, the remaining people will start at set intervals as yet to be determined.
