Detailed Course Map & Descriptions.  These maps are for all three distances.  In the event of increment weather (e.g. lightning, snow, heavy rains), the courses may be modified.

 

To reduce environmental impact in this pristine recreation area, all runners and volunteers are encouraged to bring refillable water bottles on course as well as a plate, bowl, cup and utensils for the vegetarian post race meal.  Recycling station is available at the finish line for beverage containers and we will accept returned bib pins.

On-line Registration will open in February with exact date to be announced.  

 

Please keep in mind that this race is capped at a total of 150 racers for all three events.  As such, there will be no bib transfers allowed. While it may seem like no big deal to give or sell your race bib to another person, it does present issues to both the race organizers and the participant field alike.  Race results and finisher's awards can be impacted and medical staff might not be able to identify a participant in need of treatment on the course.  It is imperative that the person wearing the bib and taking part in the race is the same person in our registrant database.  You will be required to show photo identification on race day.  No photo ID, no results, no exceptions.
