Check-in will begin at 7:00 pm at Shelter 1. We request all runners be checked in by 7:45 pm at which time we will have the pre-race briefing. The race will begin at 8:00 pm. Drop bags need to be brought to the allotted area by 7:45 pm. They will be loaded and taken to the aide station and/or left in a designated area at the start/finish line aide station, whichever you prefer. They will be brought back to the start/finish line at the completion of the race, or you may go get them if you prefer.
It is required that all runners carry a water battle or hydration pack for your race. You will also need a headlamp. There is a cut off time of 10 hours.
We love dogs, and if you let us know ahead of time we’ll even get your pup a race bib. However, as a courtesy to other runners, your dog must remain on a leash for the duration of the race. If the alternate course is used, we prefer no dogs running with the runners.
This 50K course consists of mostly rugged trails running through the beautiful trees, out on the white trail to Land's End (~6 1/2 miles) and returning to the Start/Finish line on the blue trail(~3 1/2 miles). This is a 3 loop course with each loop running 10.3 miles long.
Aide stations are located at Land's End and the Start/Finish Line and will have water, sports drink, gels, fruit, and sweet and salty snacks.
Alternate Course will be approximately 70% asphalt paved roads and 30% cross country type running. We apologize for the pavement but we must preserve the trails so they will be runnable again soon and hopefully we will be on the regularly scheduled course next year. The alternate course will be well marked and staffed to keep you on course.
First Aide Station is located at about 5 miles into the loop, at the intersection of 1415 Rd and 700 Road. It is located prior to entering the Loop of Ultimate Darkness cross country section. You will see it on your way out and you will pass by it again on your back to the start/finish line aid station. There are only 2 aide stations due to the looping course.
The start/finish line will have some good grub available for a post-race refueling. We will have regular, vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options.
All finishers will receive an award. The top three male and female finishers will receive a special PLACE award.
