What happens if it snows?

Even if there is snow on the ground the race will go on, so suck it up! It’s not likely that there will be snow, but in the event that there is a considerable amount, we may have to tweak the courses a little bit. Make sure to actually check your emails and attend the participant briefing before the race for accurate course details.

Can I pick up a packet for my friend/family member?

You may pick up a packet for family members or friends, but in an effort to keep our event safe and secure, you must present a copy of their ID (a photo works great). Have your friend/family member text/email you a photo of their ID, and bring that with you to packet pick up and you’ll be good to go.

Can I run with my dog?

Absolutely, they must be leashed and make sure to let the staff pet them first. But also start at the end of the pack so as not to impede other runners.

What is the terrain like?

Very forgiving terrain, with soft dirt and not many roots or rocks that'll jump out at you.

Are there bears on the course?

While it's very uncommon to encounter a bear during the event, this area has had sightings previously. Just make sure to run faster than the people around you and you'll be fine. But really, if you do see a bear remain calm, make your presence known, DON'T run or threaten it, make yourself look as big as possible, make lots of loud noises, and again DO NOT RUN.

CAN I WEAR HEADPHONES?

Sure, just make sure you can still hear your surroundings. The trails are active bike trails and they'll likely use verbal cues, make sure you can hear them and be able to respond.

Is there an age requirement?

You must have to be born in this year or previous years to participate.

I have questions regarding my registration (deferrals, transferring registration, distance changes, etc).

Cool, we have answers! Check out the registration changes page for further information, instructions, and deadlines.

Are there gear requirements?

It's highly recommended you bring your own water vessel to refill at aid stations. The only required gear is a headlamp or reflective system for the 100K after 8:00 PM.
