WhenSeptember 29th, 2018
- 120 mile 7:00am race start
- 60 mile 8:00am race start
Course MarkingsThe race course will be marked but I highly suggest using a Garmin GPS unit or similar. You can download the track from the “Course Info” page. I also suggest bringing a map and cues. You will come across map posts throughout the course that may help you in case of an emergency. The race is not responsible for you getting lost. If you decide to bail out you will want to know where you are going and the maps will help you.
Mandatory GearFront and rear blinky. Make yourself visible. Safety is no accident and the roads are open to traffic. You will encounter ATV’s and side by sides and maybe even a truck or two.
- 2 tubes (we are not going to haul you out if you double flat and only bring one tube)
- multi tool
- tire levers
- piece of chain and quick link
- rain / wind jacket
- trail map is mandatory for the 120 mile distance (provided)
- Bear Spray – highly recommend by the Forest Service
- In addition to the required front and rear safty lights I highly recommend a real light you can ride in the dark with. The 120 mile race will take riders into the dark and our cut off time also goes into the dark. If you are not sure how long you will be out on course please be prepared and bring an extra light.
- Rain / wind jacket
- Arm warmers, knee warmers
- 3 water bottles

Drop Out, Quit or Missed Cut-OffI can’t express enough that you are responsible for yourself and we do not have the ability to give you a ride if you decide you cannot go on. There are shorter distances, and easier ways to get back to the race headquarters from each aid station if you did not want to carry on. But this means you still have to ride back and from Checkpoint 2 for the 120 mile it is still a good ways. This is another reason to make sure you carry your map. With all this being said prepare wisely and make good decisions.
- We will transport your bags to and from the Checkpoints.
- Keep drop bags to a minimum size. NO big coolers.
- We will return drop bags when the volunteers come back from the checkpoints. Keep in mind it may be later then you want.
