Be sure to have an ID with you at number pick up so we can give you beer tickets.


The weather is unpredictable in April, it’s part of the adventure, but the race will be held regardless of the weather unless the roads are closed by the police (has never happened in the 35 year history of the race). Race entry fees are non-refundable.
