Please note - part of the course is on an untreated bike path in Colt State Park. Depending on weather conditions, there may be uneven and slippery conditions, plan accordingly with yaktrax, snowshoes or careful footing.  See the course map for the exact route.  In the true "old school running" theme - the course is "you-get-what-you-get" and participants should sign up accepting these conditions.
