Participants are expected to be largely self-sufficient. Do not plan on dropping or getting picked up from the trail. And beware the safety and comfort of the checkpoints – they are mind-sucking black holes.
Drop bags for both checkpoints will be collected at race start. Keep them small!
160-mile will have 3 checkpoints:
- 1 & 3: Ojibwa Park (heated shelter) @ approximately mile 45 & 115
- 2: turnaround in Park Falls at the St. Anthony School @ approximately mile 80
80-mile will have one checkpoint:
- Ojibwa Park (heated shelter) @ approximately mile 35
No guarantees but we will try to have some hot food available at both checkpoints. You will be able to refill water supplies, rest awhile, use the bathrooms, etc.
