The course inter-connects seven woodland properties and offers access to the Genesse Preserve where entry is normally restricted to Regional Water Authority permit holders. Aid station locations are limited to places with easy road access and the distance between stops varies. Runners are strongly advised to carry a drink bottle and their preferred choice of snack. The aid stations will be stocked with a variety of snacks typical of an event of this kind. Water and the electrolyte drink Heed by Hammer will be available at all stations.
All entrants will receive a goodie bag containing their race number, cotton shirt and information about the course. Finishers within the 10 hours time limit will receive a unique finisher award to acknowledge their achievement. There will be additional awards for the overall male and female finishers. The race is sanctioned by the USA Track and Field Association.
