Due to weather, trail users, and animals, course signage does have a tendency to fall down throughout the pre-ride period. If you are riding and see downed signs, there is no need to report them. Staff always inspects the course on race day and will secure or replace any signs that have fallen or have been damaged. Also, not all of the course signage will be up during the pre-ride period, so make sure to print/bring a map with you.

The back patio will not be available this year, so bring a camp chair and help cheer on folks at the finish line. Since we won't be hosting a formal post-race gathering, the raffle will look a little different this season. Raffle winners will be selected pre-race, so swing by the registration tent after your race and look for a bag with your name/plate # to see if you've won!
