The route consists of a 2.6 mile loop that includes ~240' of gain and loss. From the upper Prescott Park parking area, the course follows the loop road that circumnavigates Roxy Ann Peak (an ancient volcano). The first .8 miles of the loop is gently undulating paved road. As it changes to gravel you climb more quickly before descending more gradually to the start. Along the way you will experience a 360-degree panorama of the Rogue Valley and surrounding mountains. Mt. Ashland, Mt. Shasta, Mt. McLoughlin, the Three Sisters, Mt. Thielsen, and the Table Rocks can all be seen from different places on the mountain. After 3 hours you change direction, and change back every 3 hours. A sample of the course can be viewed at https://www.strava.com/routes/2925589794225488400
As in "stuff we all get". Everyone who completes at least 1 lap will receive a glass and a medal. At packet pickup runners will receive a bag of goodies that includes useful swag and one wearable item. Shirts and other items are available as add-ons.
Top 3 males and top 3 females in each race will receive awards. Buckles for 100+ miles!
There is one aid station, located near the start/finish area. During the day it will offer usual ultra foods. At night it will also offer hot soups/meals and hot drinks. Hammer Heed will be available.
Runners may purchase a spot to set-up a personal tent/aid station in the start/finish area. These spots are $10 each and will be marked out (sorry no camping the night before).
