2021 Event Update

We are still planning on hosting this event. To meet new Covid guidelines, we expect the course to be out and back this year. We will start and finish at Gemini Bridges parking area. Because shuttles are not possible, we cannot transport runners for the point-to-point course. 

We will post more information, as we move through the planning process.

Of course, as guidelines change so may our plans.
