It is important to not crease, or fold the the timing chip to ensure your finish time is read. Results after each lap will be displayed on a screen at the finish line turnaround.

Course Markings
The race courses will be well marked with orange plastic ribbons with black polka dots. Trail junctions and turns will be well marked with colored laminated signs that correspond with your race’s color (4M = Blue, 20K = Green, 20M = Yellow, 52K = Red, 52M = White, 100M = Orange). Please pay attention to these signs at each junction as there are multiple race distances and race courses! In addition, blue & white checkerboard plastic flagging will be hung to designate non-race or “WRONG WAY” trails. All runners are responsible for understanding the layout of the courses. Please familiarize yourself with the course maps on our website prior to race day and/or print a map to bring along with you.

The start/finish line is located at Ramada 9 in the Turf Area. Once you enter the park through the entry station, turn right onto Casey Abbott Drive South just past the Turf Picnic Area. The next left will be Chipotle Way – turn left and park in the Ramada 9 parking area.
