Hiker / walker friendly race
The 10k we welcome walkers. The half marathon if youre a fast walker you can do but we keep a strict 6 hour cutoff time to hike the entire 13 mile course which features a big climb and some technical trails. You should be able to hike it in that time but thats if youre in shape for hiking that far and on mountain trails. We have one aid station for the half at approx 8 miles in with a cut off. It will water and Gatorade.
Local time: 4:33 AM
