There will be a water/food station located in the parking lot (water will be provided by us, you bring the vessel!). You will start and finish in the parking lot. You will run through the parking lot twice during each loop (approximately every 1.5 miles you will go through the parking lot). Each loop is 4.2 miles.
There will be space on the table for gels, and GU's and such. Please bring your specific items in a container (Tupperware works well) that is clearly labeled. This will be put next to the water station table for you to access. Any community gels and such can be placed in the community container for all to share.
Participants are encouraged to carry water with them on the course!
Please note that this event will be not be officially timed! Any participant who wishes to know their time is encouraged to use their own timing device.
The majority of this event takes place on a single track dirt trail with a few sections of wood chip trail mixed in. Due to weather conditions, your shoes may get wet, damp, or muddy. There are no planned water crossings but please dress for the weather (and recent precipitation amounts).
The first 1/2 mile contains 200 feet of steep limestone cut steps (270 total). You will "run" up these twice per lap! Please use caution on the steps.
