With one day to go to our 25th running, the trails look great (considering they were covered in snow no more than a week ago)! The trail condition varies from good to muddy, and the route is now totally clear of snow. Our fearless founder Doug McKeever spent Thursday surveying and clearing the trails (in glorious sunshine, no less). There are some fallen trees across the trail that Doug was not able to completely clear, so he has cut steps into the trunks for runners to better navigate over. He's also marked the upper loop with Doug-style race signs.
We are expecting wet weather conditions all day Saturday, so be sure to prepare and dress adequately. Each runner is able to leave one bag with dry clothes and other post-race necessities (a towel would be nice!) properly labeled with a bib number at the finish line. Note that we cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items (this has never happened, but we have to say it anyway!).
There will be a warm shelter, changing rooms and open-sided tents in Fairhaven Park for runners to rest, clean up/change, relax, eat, drink and socialize after finishing the race. Please stay for the many post-race festivities and Awards Ceremony beginning at 2:30pm - details on the activities and celebrations are outlined on our Race Weekend Details page.
Please see the link to our Crew Directions under the RACE INFORMATION menu tab for information about race day crewing. We welcome crews at Aid Stations #1 & #5, both hosted in the Lost Lake Parking Lot.
See you soon!
