Entry Details


Registration & Start Times

Mass start at 6:45 pm; late arrivals until 7 pm will be timed.

Terrain Description

Recent inspections of the ground report that this year, the track is in near perfect conditions with spiked or trail running shoes recommended for a good time.

The warm summer appears to have decimated the flies and bugs that have been known to blight the event in previous years, but you may still wish to bring insect repellent!
