Park Information

We have rented out the pavilion #3 for for the day with a reminder that the park is closing at 6pm so we all have a 10 hour cutoff (2.5 hours per half marathon for the relay group) (4 Hour half marathon for the 50k runners). It has power, restrooms, and water supply. The gate opens up at 5am but I am asking them to give us the gate code if people want to arrive earlier than that before our 6:30am race start! Also there are camp sites available up to 40 sites for people that want to come in from out of town. For those who plan on running late into the night but do not want to reserve a camp site there is a HUGE ball field that we will be using as out ULTRA Field for the runners!
