Participants may pick up their race packets Friday, February 9th 1pm-5pm. The course will be open that afternoon for individuals who want to see the course prior to the race.
New for this year is the Yeti Dash! The Yeti Dash is a 1 mile trail system run. Nature/critter costumes are mandatory for any guests who wish to participate in the Yeti Dash. Any guests who do not dress in costume will not be eligible to win a Yeti Dash medal. One medal will be awarded to the first place finisher in each age group category.
