CONDITIONS: It’s winter/spring in Michigan! The temps have gotten warmer, but now we have mud! All races are both road and trail so be prepared for some slush and mud. You will have earned that medal!!! If it was easy everyone would do it, and you wouldn’t have bragging rights Monday morning at the water cooler. You can tell them it was just like an obstacle course, we don’t mind.
PARKING: at the softball field in the park (volunteers will direct you) ,and if needed, overflow will be three blocks East of the park off Lansing Road at 300 Wright Way (industrial park, home of our good friends at 21st Century Plastics who were nice enough to let us borrow their lot). In the event of overflow parking we will have volunteers to shuttle you there, but we do not guarantee a return shuttle. Please be respectful of the industrial parking lot and softball fields i.e. no trash dumping etc. Thank you!!
ROOTBEER and BEER: Eaglemonk will be offering tastings! However, if you look under 30, please have your ID ready. Only those 21+ may have beer samples.
BAG CHECK: Come see the Registration area for a bag check. It goes without saying; though please do not have valuables for us to store as we can’t be held responsible
