The course is very smooth, wide, open, and a bit hilly. The weather is expected to be in the mid 60s and mid-80s with an estimate of 3-7mph winds. Regardless of the weather conditions, we will continue to race unless life-threatening circumstances occur. We will send out emails as the event gets closer on weather conditions and what to expect.

This race is a cupless race so please come with your own water carrying system whether that's a running vest, camelback, or hand-held water bottles/cups. We do not tolerate littering. One of our biggest values is being environmentally friendly. Help keep the environment maintained to its natural state without hurting the animals and plants that live there. 

AID STATION

This race will have only one main aid station located at the start and finish area (every 4.5 miles.)

The aid station will be manned by a few volunteers and will have water, pickle juice, bananas, oranges, and other various salty, sweet, and savory snacks.
