The 50 milers will run the big loop three times, then run the
loop twice. (In the past, the 50 milers have sometimes run the big loop 4 times). This will make
the 50 mile run more interesting, and allows 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.
The course is not hilly or steep by usual ultra standards.
The lowest evevation is over 200' ASL and the highest is under 400'ASL.
