2017 Lord of the Fork Race Results

Thanks to all who endured some rather moist and frigid weather to take part in the 2017 LOTF race. We had observations of sleet at the finish line. I was wondering if we would finish the race in a snowstorm. The view upstream with mist jetting up from the turbulent water as the temperature fell was pretty awesome.

Our aspirations to become more tech savvy were challenged by the affect of rain on the iPad screens. After cross referencing notes and other materials, I think we have an accurate set of records. If you have anything to add, I’ll be happy to consider it.

As always, events like this take efforts of more than one. I would like to thank Sara Mullett for all of the registration help, bib collecting and for stoking an awesome finish line bonfire. Willy Witt for starting everyone off. Damon Patterson for spotting incoming bib numbers, and those that set safety along the course.

If those who still have bibs would be so kind to return them, it would be appreciated. These have been provided by the generosity of a few folks and are very expensive to replace.

Thanks again to all who make the Russell Fork a special place to come home to each year. Hope to see you next year,

2015 Lord of the Fork Race Results

james wrote 992 days ago:


Congrats to Dane, Geoff, and Isaac for the podium finishes!

We had a record Turnout for the race this year. Ninety six racers by my count.

This was the 21st edition of the Russell Fork Race. It was renamed “The Lord of the Fork” race in honor of Jon Lord, who died at Tower in 2004. If you could decipher the script at the bottom of the bibs, it pays tribute to him.

I would like to mention that Chris Hipgrave, who for years held the course record for the race, which he set in a Wavehopper, was part of the very first timed event in 1995. He has been a regular, and is still at the top of the field, competing against some who weren’t even born then. Well done Chris!

The 30 second interval start seemed to go over well. I know there were a number of passes, which we hope to minimize. It was sure exciting to watch at the finish.

Thanks for your patience with the delayed start. We had a number of very late entries, which we’ll need to find a better way to deal with next year.

Safety is always a worry when organizing an event such as this. Thanks to those who were willing to set safety along the river. JB Seay and BJ Phillips hiked in with safety gear. Others paddled in.

Thanks to all who volunteered: Jesse Sammons, Gerald Delong and Daman Patterson for starting everyone off. Sadly Willy Witt had to miss out on his duties there this year. Jay Ditty, who was willing to start early after sprinting to the start after dealing with the late entries, and then race first to help with timing. And Maggie Snowel for registration, and bib management. My least favorite part of an event like this is hounding folks for their bibs. Thanks to all who made our life easier by handing them back.

And Thanks to all who donated to cover costs. Many gave extra, which will cover most of our annual expense, which is primarily insurance. And to those who donated prizes and awards.

Hope to see you next year.

Eric

2015 Lord of the Fork Race

bozemankayaker wrote 1011 days ago:


Saturday, October 24th will be the Lord of the Fork Race. It will have the usual format: One Minute Intervals from Skunk Beach area to Climax, unless for some reason Fist cleans up between now and then. The Rendezvous will be taking place at Carson Island, so we will do the awards there.

Kayak race through the Russell Fork Gorge. Start line is just around the right-hand bend below Fist, finish line is at Climax. Class 4-5, better know where you’re going in there. One minute interval starts. No entry fee, but we have $5 of expense for each racer, so donations are encouraged to help offset this. Every racer is expected to bring a prize for the winners, we’ll divide it all up after the race. Bib handout and waivers will be taken care of on race day. If you know someone that plans to race and is not on Facebook, please send me a message and I’ll try to contact them. Also message me if interested in volunteering for safety or other logistics.

There is a Facebook Event Page, which we’ll use to create a start list. It is open to the public, so invite anyone you think may be going.
