* * Please note we have NOT reserved a group site.  If you want to camp, you'll have to reserve your own site, or find someone to share a site with.

There will once again be food for after the race, sponsored by Sell or Buy with Brittany Nigh. 

Check in will open at 6:30am and will be in the shelter. 

This is a state park, so you will need a trail pass and a parking pass (both of which you can purchase at registration on the day of).  The DNR will be patrolling the parking lot throughout the day and they will ticket any violators. 

The race will be held rain or shine (unless we have monsoon conditions the week leading up to the race).  If it rains during the race and trail conditions rapidly deteriorate, there may be an "intermission" during the race as we wait for the rain to subside. 

Any questions, e-mail Brittany at Brittany@BrittanyNigh.com
