Difficult sections may be marked with arrows, but all racers are responsible for watching for injurious sections and obstacles. We recommend substantial trail running shoes and discourage track style shoes. Depending on temperatures the courses may be frozen, rocky, muddy, firm, hard, mushy or weedy. We have had these all in the same race. We will have the yurts warm and ready to warm up bodies. The weather is unpredictable! Bring extra layers, including light layers. Pre-run or walk the course so you know when to use your reserves. Some of the courses are deceptive.
Race #2 of a 3 race series: The Series will consist of three races. Each race will be around five miles and each participant has the option to run or walk or both. There will be a series shirt for participants who enter at least two of the three races. All races will meet at the East Mink Creek Nordic Center. If a shuttle is necessary it will be provided by the city prior to the race.
