As of today, the CDC regulations say no large gatherings until May 3rd. With the rapid changes over the last week we felt it was best to shut down registration just in case this date was extended. We have a waitlist set. You can register at no cost and we will notify you if registration opens back up. At that time you can either accept or deny the entry.
Majestic views, challenging trails, and ROCKIN' race day party are STARS of this course!
