A smooth but windy 10.48 mile loop. Little elevation, but don't let that fool you, it ain't easy. Mostly single track and 99.8% trail. Click the picture to the left for the full course profil
The course will have two major aid stations, New Country Aid Station, which is the start and end of every loop, and Whiskey Girl, which is just about the halfway mark, at 5.14 miles.
At New Country runners can leave a drop bag at the start with anything needed for the race, we will have shelter there. Crew can access this point.
Whiskey Girl has a larger parking lot along with roadside parking, where crew members can see their runners here. We will also provide drop bag service for any runner who needs their “special items” here.
Both aid stations will be well stocked with water, Tailwind, Hammer Gels and tasty treats, sandwiches, baked items and the hot foods for late night hours. If you’ve got any requests please let us know, so we can make sure they are there.
We'll have two trips down to Whiskey Girl for your drop bags. Leaving North Country at 6:15 and 7:15. There is also a place for your drop bags AT North Country. Please have any of your belongings labeled with your last name and bib number.
We WILL allow pacers though we ask that as a pacer, you limit your intake of the food at our aid stations. Pacers will be allowed after 12 hours race time. The reason we’re going with a time, is because we feel that being a looped 10 mile course with so much support there is actually little to no need for a pacer. THOUGH, with the road crossings and wanting to have as many first time 100s out there as possible, we know it’s a great thing for some. So we don’t mind it, but we want to see you get as much of it done on your own as you can.
Crews will also be able to meet you at a few locations through the course. We’d like to keep them to the two aid stations. Both of easily accessible
This is tricky but here's the deal. You MUST finish the race you Our first year we struggled hard with this. We honestly had a couple of pretty long conversations about what to do here, and we settled on the following rule. “The race you start is the race you must complete to earn a finish” We did this because we want you to challenge yourself, we want you to try. If there is a medal waiting for you at every lap, then that make it less in our eyes. You can change distances up until the race start time. So if you wanted to do the 100 but show up thinking you can only do a 50, you can tell us, and we’ll shift you to the 50. Though, once you start the 100, that’s that, you need to complete the 100.
