When:Saturday, March 10 2018 - Sunday, March 11 2018
Slayride Banked Slalom is back and powered by Carter Subaru! Last year's event was a huge success thanks to the participants who raised almost $30,000 for Fred Hutch, and the dozens of partners and volunteers who made it happen. This year we are going to be doing a two day event with qualifiers Saturday and finals on Sunday. Registration is now full and a waiting list has begun. You can still register to add your name to the waiting list. If you aren't able to compete this year, don't worry you can still spectate and help us slay cancer by purchasing beer from the beer gardens featuring Elysian Brewing or volunteering your time.
Competitors: After racing has concluded Saturday, we will have dinner in the Pacific Crest Lodge with a DJ and beer garden featuring Elysian Brewing. Sunday after racing concludes we will have awards at the Pacific Crest Lodge (second floor). We highly encourage all competitors to raise a minimum of $150 toward the cause and you can find tips on how to do this in your email from Fred Hutch. For the 2018 race we will not make this a requirement and if you do not raise the minimum you will still be allowed to race and not be charged the remaining balance. All proceeds for the event go directly to Fred Hutch for cancer research. We can't wait to shred on the mountain and raise money for Fred Hutch again this year with you all! All competitors will need to sign a liability waiver. To save some time you can download the waiver HERE and bring it with you to check in.
Check in will start at 7:30am Saturday and Sunday am in the Trailside Room (Pacific Crest Lodge first floor). Plan to arrive EARLY in order to allow yourself enough time for any potential road delays, parking and to be ready to load and slip the course on time. During inspection you will be allowed to inspect or side slip only for safety. There will be an early check in on Friday, March 9th from 4pm-6pm in the Trailside Room (Pacific Crest Lodge) for those who want to get everything out of the way prior to Saturday am and save some time. Early check in will close at 6pm on Friday and open back up at 7:30am on Saturday.
