There will be two aid stations spaced about 10 miles apart on the loop, plus one at the lap. Each will have water, Honey Stinger gels, bars, waffles & chews; Hammer Endurolyte capsules, Heed, & Perpetuem (solids and powder); Gatorade, bananas, other kinds of energy bars, peanut butter and jelly, cookies, pretzels, and other snacks.
There will not be cups or bottles to hand you, but we will have plenty of people around to help fill your bottles or packs.
Racers must leave these checkpoints on their final lap by the times listed below:
Lap Aid Station – 1:00pm
Blair Aid Station – 2:45pm

If you miss a cut-off time, you will be shown the easiest/shortest way back to the start/finish. It’s up to you to get back on your own. Your race number will be recorded and you will be listed as DNF in the results. You must take off your race number to avoid confusion for race staff.

All dirt roads on the course are open to traffic. We will do our best to alert drivers, but not getting smashed by a car is ultimately your responsibility. The course is open to livestock grazing, so don’t be surprised to see cattle. Other than that, it’s a mountain bike course and you should expect everything associated with that.
Courses are marked with red diamond shaped signs with white arrows and pink flagging. We may also use orange cones or barracade tape to mark some intersections.
