This course will be closing on a 18 minute mile pace. If you cannot keep this pace, we ask that you follow trail etiquette until you reach the finish area.
Start Line/Corrals: We ask that you “self-seed” at the start line, meaning that faster people start in the front and slower runners/walkers start in the back of the pack.
