FAQs
Many of your questions can be answered here by clcking on the Athlete Guide

Can I register on race day?

You can register race day if we don't sell out! Visit registration/ packet pickup table prior to race start.

Can I walk the course?

All participants must meet the requirements of completing all distances before course closure (see COURSE page for time limits). If you can not finish within time limits, we can't guarantee course support—which is paramount for your safety. Aid stations and medical support will become unavailable to participants as course time limits are reached. The race organizers may ask you to reroute to a shorter version of the course or DNF.

How can I check to see if I am registered?

Select "More" tab in Runsignup. Select "Participant Tracking" tab and enter your name.

Do I have to wear my bib?

Numbers must be worn on the front and be clearly visible at all times.

Will the trail be well marked and visible with directional arrows?
The trails will be marked with surveyor flags, signs, tape and volunteers where needed. Markings will be very close together where there is a turn or the possibility of going in the wrong direction. They will be much further apart when there is a low possibility of going in the wrong direction. The trails are very simple to follow. Don't make unprompted turns and you should be fine.

Can I switch distances?

You can switch distances at any time prior to race day.
