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?

Sorry, as much as we love dogs, they aren't allowed at this race.

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.


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 all participants on course after 8:00 PM.
This race does not offer refunds or deferrals. If you are registered for the event, you agreed to the no refund and no deferral policy prior to submitting your online registration. (This includes those who experience illness, injury or any other condition that may prevent them from participating in the event.)
