There will be one self-serve aid station along the course at the "Spider" location.
We will have a large station located at the four-way Spider intersection. 10k'ers will pass through once, half marathoners twice, and marathoners will run past this station four times.
Due to COVID-19, these stations will not have volunteers to replenish food/drinks.
We highly recommend you carry water and snacks that will sustain you during the sections of course without an aid station.
There will be an aid station at the finish and marathoners will have access to this when they lap.
Finish is located near the start at South Ridge.
Upon finishing, runners will be asked to leave the stadium area. Drinks and snacks will be available outside the stadium.
There will be no after-party or live awards ceremony. Runners will be asked to leave the finish area aid station once they stock up on food and water.
Ample parking will be available at the South Ridge base lodge area.
Indoor bathrooms will be available at South Ridge. There will be no changing rooms or bag storage areas. Please practice 6' distancing and wear masks while using the facilities.
Spectators will be allowed on course but not inside stadium area or aid stations.
Groups of more than 5 people will be asked to disperse.
For the safety of all runners and volunteers, no dogs will be allowed on the race course or the stadium area.
Our prizes are very limited this year do to a loss in sponsorship.
First place finishers in all categories (except hiking/untimed) will be awarded a pair of very cool socks.
All participants will receive a locally and lovingly handmade medal.
We hope the 2021 event will bring all sorts of goodies!
