You will pass the aid station each lap and there will be access to bathrooms and running water. Additionally, there will be an area to set up personal aid stations as needed. Slight .2 mile incline at the start of each lap, followed by rolling 1 mile alternating single track and double. It follows a xc ski perimiter loop, and grass could be somewhat long in the field, though generally is groomed well!

TIMING: We will start together at 7pm. If you show up late, you will be on your own, but wait a few minutes and you'll see one of us. Timing is pretty laid back. We will have a spreadsheet for race morning. Find your name and record each lap as you come through. It is on the honor system. No partial laps count. Events start "x" amount of hours from the cutoff 7pm on 7/7. Just count back from 7pm the number of hours in your event for the proper start. Camping is allowed. Please ask to find a designated area to place a tent if you care to. 10' x 10' is preferred. Nothing larger. You may also elect to nap in your car in the parking lots.
