Race Guide πŸ“œ

Please make sure you've read and memorized the race guide. If you haven't yet, you can download it now. A quick note to 85k runners. The Start/Finish is an aid station for you after the first 10k and the Millston Aid Station at 11ish miles will be open when you arrive.

Course πŸ—Ί Maps πŸ—Ί

Downloadable maps are available on Strava.

Cupless 🚫πŸ₯€

There are no cups at the aid stations. Please remember to bring something to hold liquids. Until we get more nurun co. cups this is a great option.

Parking πŸ…ΏοΈ

There should be plenty of room in the Smrekar lot. You can use the middle of the lot, not just the perimeter. Here's a map that allows you to enter your starting point and then get directions to the parking lot. Refer to the race guide for more parking details.

Forest Roads πŸš™πŸšΈπŸŒ²

Please be alert for runners crossing roads and try to have all 4 tires off of the road when parking in the forest.

Area Maps and Driving Directions in the Forest

I recommend downloading the map of Black River State Forest to your phone. Service is often spotty at best in the forest. Here are instructions for Google Maps.

βŒ›οΈ Registration πŸ“‹

Registration is open through Wednesday October 18th.

Thanks for reading to the end! There may be another update this week. But, regardless, we'll see you on Saturday!
