Same as last year. We'll start at White Rock Bay near the trailhead. The course will then take you on some dirt roads for about 2-3 miles so the massive crowd of runners can string out a little bit, then you'll bushwack for about a quarter mile down the hillside to the Mountain View trail, then turn right and run to the Fielding Garr Ranch at the south end of the island. That's all there is to it. Pretty easy.
We'll have four aid stations set up. They'll have water, some sort of sports drink (probably whatever was left over from the Buffalo Run), and hopefully some gels at one aid station. Don't count on the gels though. We highly recommend that you carry a bottle with you.
Stuff you get
What do you get for running the race? Well, you get free entry on to the island. We'll toss in some sort of tech shirt with the really cool race logo on it. Last year we gave away prize money to the top three men and women. It wasn't much, but at least we gave some out. We'll also have a bar-b-que at the ranch for runners and family (family costs a little bit extra, like $3 each). Oh, and we'll give you a ride back to White Rock Bay to pick up your car. Are we nice or what?
