@krgolden The new course is a very challenging and fun course. It can get tight on the back side of that 2nd lap, as the leaders can, and in a couple of races, have caught the tail end of the first lap runners, but they are visible and have been easily turned in the right direction. The course layout gives runners a true test over a wide variety of challenges including fast flats, downhills, grueling uphills, good hard packed footing and loose sandy spots, and depending on the weather the possibility of some slick muddy areas. This course is very spectator friendly from the field where the teams set up their tents and finish line areas.

@runintherain93 The course will be open from 3:30 P.M. till dark on Friday. The turn flags will be down, but some of us will be around to try and answer any questions that may arise. Please feel free to stop any of us and ask if there is any confusion; we want everyone to have a great race, and look forward to putting this event on each year.
