Camping: See Instructions page for full details

Parking:

The lot at St. Helena Park will fill up early. Overflow lots will be marked and signs will direct you to the next available lot as they fill up. Once all the lots are full in the immediate area, you can find a legal spot on nearby city streets.

Course Information:

The 5-mile loop course is entirely on crushed limestone trails, except for the two ends where you will use the berm of Butterbridge and Cherry Street to cross from one trail to the other. The trails are almost completely flat. Mile markers will be placed on the course so you know where you are at all times.

The trails are not completely closed, so you will have to share the space with other runners, walkers and cyclers. Please be aware of those around you.

Pacers:

Pacers are permitted on foot throughout the race, as long as they don't provide physical assistance. It gets lonely out there, so if you need company, you're welcome to have it. We'd appreciate it if your support crew brought their own food so they don't take from the paying participants'.

Distances:

When you register, we will ask for the distance you intend to complete. This is for our planning purposes, but you are not obligated to complete your distance and stop, nor does it prohibit you from completing a shorter distance than you originally intend.

 

You will receive the award for the distance you complete. For example, if you registered to complete 50K and you want to keep going and do 50 miles, you will receive the award for what you accomplish.

 

You may also stop and rest any time you want, provided you re-enter the course at the exact point you left it.
