Timing

We will use the UltraSignup timing app for this event and there will be no live tracking. Results will be posted on UltraSignup a few days following the event.

DNF’s (Did Not Finish)

If you aren’t able to finish the route or get lost, you are still responsible to get back to the finish area. While there will be volunteers sweeping the course of flagging, no one is coming along the trail to pick you up.

Emergencies

On the trail, you are responsible for you! Please make sure you have enough fluids,  proper gear, appropriate first aid, and know how to use it. If you see someone in trouble, please provide help.
