Leave No Trace We have been in danger of losing this race because of complaints by property owners about the amount of trash left on some trails. Please carry your trash to the next aid station, or drop it just after a station. Please be very considerate of the landowner’s property. Please do not litter!!

There are leash laws in the towns you will be going through. All dogs should be restrained.

If you didn’t get into our race, or cannot race with us and would still like to be involved-Please Volunteer with us!

  • Trail Guidelines for Runners/Relay Team Members and Pacers:

    1. Runner number must be worn on the front and outside whatever clothing you are wearing. If scorers cannot see your number they cannot score you. It is the runner’s responsibility to insure that you have been scored at each station.
    1. ABSOLUTELY NO LITTERING! You will be disqualified if you, your crew or your pacers are caught littering.
    1. NO VEHICLE PACING IS ALLOWED!

    Aid Stations for Runners with Handler Access are Skunk Hollow, Greenall’s, and Johnsons.

    No handler or crew access is allowed anywhere on the course except at the designated handler/crew stations.
