Thank you to all the racers that are registered and ready to race on the 18th. We  have over 70 racers signed up and can't wait to see everyone out there on Saturday. We did have to make some slight altercations to the race course, due to possible construction, but have worked around the inconvenience and put together, what we think is a great course. We had all of our maps ready to go for course set-up on the 11th, but on the night of the 10th, we were made aware of possible road and trail closures. There was a press release saying Rock Cut will be closing the eastern area of Rock Cut.  We were never notified, but thanks to Richard Spencer (who is racing the 6 hour course), we found out that Rock Cut is scheduled to close some roads and trails. We quickly came up with a plan B, since a huge portion of our race was going to be the eastern area along with Olson Lake and according to the press release we would not have been able to get racers over to the Olson Lake area. We have been out at Rock Cut all day today plotting a new course, mapping it out, and setting CPs. It was a huge wrench at the last second, but I think we managed to put together a fun course for the 6 hour racers. Map A and the 2 hour race was able to remain the same, but having to reroute our large map was a surprise to us, especially the night before setting the CPs. So, if you read or hear anything about the closures, don't worry, we are set and ready to race. Specific race information along with race maps and a prerace video will go out later in the week. 6 hour racers, we will still keep Map C a mystery until you guys are out on the course. If construction is on track and the closures happen, racers will have to enter the park off of 173. We will try to keep you posted on that as we get closer to the 18th.

Race details and maps will be sent out mid week. We will also post the information in our tabs above. Should be great racing weather this weekend!
