Course Descriptions/Aid/Maps

Brief Description of Courses/Aid
The race courses is a loop that starts and finishes at Taneum Junction and uses the 1326 and 1377 trails. The 25k starts and finishes it's loop the same way and from the same place but takes a short cut by running down the Forest Service Road (dirt) 114. The aid stations are spaced apart a bit, so please plan ahead and make sure you bring enough food/water. We recommend carrying 2 water bottles or more!  For the 50k you'll begin by going 9.6 miles to the first aid.  Aid #2 is at mile 14.5, then there's a pretty big gap between full aid stations: 10 miles. But there is a water only station during that gap at mile 21. For the 25k, we have 2 aid stations that you share with the 50k, one at mile 7.6 and one at mile 10.2.  Please be prepared to run 8 miles after the last aid station to the finish. We will have lots of food and drink at the finish line! SCROLL DOWN for revised maps/Aid Stations (as of 9/4/13).

What's at the Aid Stations
We will have GU gels, candy, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, fruit, potato chips, S-Caps Electrolytes, soda, and cookies. There will also be plain water and water with GU Brew at all the aid stations.  Aid station labeled "water only" will only have water.

You will notice that the course is long. I just measured it for 2013, it's the original course from 1996, so it has always been long, but it worth noting ahead of time.
