Course

This will be a 2.5 mile loop course consisting of farm roads, grass fields, and a small amount of double track.

The course is on private property. Running the course before race day is not allowed. The course will be open Friday afternoon/night for preview.

This is a chip timed event.

Start and Finish will be in the same spot, with an "exit" just before the for runners to refuel as needed. This exit will also be where relay teams will exchange their bibs before beginning another loop.  Solo racers will have the option to set up an aid table along the course prior to the finish line and course exit. These tables may be used to stage items needed during the race. These tables must be accessed from the course and runners may not leave the course except through the designated "exit." 

Voluteers will be stationed at the exit to help us keep track of who is on course. If you plan on returning to your camp we ask that you use the exit to help us keep track of runners.If you decide to end your run early, please turn in your bib number to the volunteer or the timing crew.

Start time is 9AM on Saturday March 23. 

Racers must complete their final lap before 9AM on Sunday March 24. Uncompleted laps by the cutoff time are not counted in overall time/mileage. Final time will be based on last timed checkpoint.

Relay Teams

Relay teams are considered any registered racers in a Team of 2 or Team of 4. Relay teams can be all female, all male, or coed.

Relay Teams may exchange whenever they want within the exchange area.

Pacers

Pacers will be allowed ONLY for individual runners, teams may NOT use pacers. It is your responsibility to recruit a pacer if desired. Pacers need to register via the link below so that we have waivers on file and a record of who will potentially be on course. Pacers will not be allowed on course until 6:30PM. Only one pacer may accompany a runner at a time. Pacers must wear a yellow jersey, which will be issued at athlete check in, and announce themselves to the timers as they come down the finish chute. A non-marked or unannounced runner in the finish chute can result in disqualification for the registered runner/team. Pacers may not carry any aid for their runner, they may only carry what they need. Pacers will also need to be carrying a source of light during the required time frame. Pacers will not receive finisher medals or shirts.
