The course will have about 12 checkpoints over 5 to 6 miles.

You can run the event as an individual or in a team of any number. You will need hiking/running gear, a headlight and a compass. Maps will be handed out at the start.

The event uses trails and checkpoints set up in the area. The winning time is expected to be about 1 and a 1/2 hours for a fast team and 3 to four hours are allowed. Teams may choose to get as many checkpoints as they desire so the event is suitable for all levels.
