A probable change: The 50 milers will run the big loop three times, then run the
loop twice. (In the past, the 50 milers have run the big loop 4 times). This will make
the 50 mile run more interesting, and allow a later cut-off for starting the last lap. The final
decision on the course will be made before the Friday night briefing, and will depend on
course condition and where the NFS has done their season burns.
