Aid Stations: There are 3 aid stations on the 17.5K route which you will pass 5 times . There will be water, coke, sweet and salty snacks. If it's not mentioned here don't expect it, if you want it bring it, if we surprise you with something not mentioned...great!
We love them and encourage their presence on our weekly trail runs HOWEVER to ensure runners safety we must ask that you leave your furry friends at home.
Please please leave your headphones at home as it detracts from the whole trail experience as well as limits your interaction with others and your environment. We have found that runners wearing headphones tend to get lost more frequently, miss trail directions and are unaware of other runners trying to pass.
Please abide by the "take out what you bring in and leave nothing but footprints" moto. We are here by the graciousness of Mrs. Bata and the Bata Corporation so while it is wilderness it is privately owned. Leave all garbage at aid stations.
A quick moving trail runner, especially one who seemingly emerges from out of nowhere on an unsuspecting trail user, can be quite alarming. Give a courteous and audible announcement well in advance of your presence and intention to pass others on the trail stating something like, “On your left,” as you approach. Show respect when passing, by slowing down or stopping if necessary to prevent accidental contact. Be ready to yield to all other trail users (bikers, hikers, horses) even if you have the posted right of way. Uphill runners yield to downhill runners in most situations.
We do not condone bandit runners. Not only are bandits a serious safety and liability concern they can jeopardize the issuance of future permits and insurance.
Please leave your alcohol for post-race celebrations.
