NEW IMPROVEMENTS FOR 2022: Now that Covid restrictions are easing, we have improvements in mind for our second year! Increased trail signage, hot food at some aid stations and the finish, a warming tent and changing tent at the finish, the option for finish line drop bags, and increased shuttle service will be added to the event to make our runners more comfortable and keep you going. Both distances will have GPS trackers so your crew will know where you are and your families and fans can watch at home!
There are no mandatory volunteer hours required for any of our races; however, they are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
Signs and flagging mark the entire 100-mile course. Maps will also be provided and each racer or team will be assigned a GPS tracker for the entire race so race staff, support crews, and family can track you during your journey.
100-Mile Runners: (4) one-gallon bags provided by us at check-in.
100K Runners: (2) one-gallon bags provided by us at check-in.
