The ​​​​​​​​course will be the well marked 2.6 mile trail that circumnavigates Lake Padden. The trail will have obvious markers and additional glow lights for the night time hours. The trail is a wooded, natural setting so it’s required that runners come prepared with headlamps. Trail surface is compact dirt and/or crushed gravel, nontechnical, with minimal elevation change. Each loop has 244 ft. of elevation gain.

Race support will include a variety of food, water and electrolyte drinks. 
Bagels, peanut butter, fruit, candy, soups, boiled potatoes, chips, cookies, gels​ etc. will be available. Periodically specialty foods will be available for sale. 
*If you require specialty foods such as gluten or dairy free please let us know.

A shelter will be provided for resting.  Consider bringing a pad and sleeping bag for use in the shelters. Personal camping is not allowed outside the shelter.

Runners will be able to exit and enter the course only at designated areas.
