Additional Information

Make sure that you have trail running shoes, and a light source. What works best for me is a head lamp combined with a small flash light. The trail is muddy in some places so trail running shoes are vital to help prevent you from slipping. You will follow reflective ribbon the entire way. If you don’t see any reflective ribbon you’re going the wrong way.

A light source is required for this race. (Headlamp or high powered flashlight)
