One very unique aspect of our race is the ability to change distance mid race! If you signed up for the 50 miler and just don't feel your best, drop down to one of the lower distances. And if you signed up for the 50K and feel like a million bucks, just keep going! All you have to do is let the volunteer at the turn point that you are dropping down or jumping up.


There will be bins at the start line for depositing drop bags. Bins will be marked by aid station number. Once the race starts, the drop bags will be delivered to the appropriate aid station. Drop bags must be marked on the outside with your full name. If you will have liquids in your drop bag, they MUST be in a ziplock bag or other bag that will not leak.. Each aid station will also contain a bin marked "Done". Once you are ready for your drop bag to go back to the finish line, place it in the "Done" bin. Drop bags will be returned to the Finish Line throughout the day. Please be patient as this process sometimes takes time.
