Hopefully we will have a  pre-race dinner on Friday, June 11th, 2021, beginning at 5:30 P.M. The dinner is free for all registered individual and team runners.The pre-race dinner and meeting will be held at a location yet to be determined.Volunteers will be on hand to check-in runners, brief runners on the course and answer questions regarding the race. We will distribute race numbers and shirts at the dinner. The pre-race briefing and dinner usually wraps up by 7:30 p.m, Please plan accordingly.

We will also be collecting drop bags at the dinner. Drop bags will be allowed for Aid Station 6, Aid Station 7 and Finish. Remember that thunderstorms with cold, drenching rain are common in the area at this time of year. Plan on dressing accordingly, or have the appropriate clothing in your drop bags. Also, all but the front runners will be running in the dark. Please be prepared, have a usable flashlight with extra batteries available after 8:30 P.M. Drop bags will also be collected at the start on race morning.

Race morning registration will begin at 4:30 A.M. in Ohiopyle, PA. The race itself begins at 5:30 A.M. Parking and Check-in are located in the Ferncliff Natural Area parking lot . Packet  pick-up, runner check-in and drop bag collection will take place at this time. The Start Line will be located across the street from Check-in near Wilderness Voyageurs.

There will be a bus available on race morning to take runners to the start. The bus will leave the finish area promptly at 3:30 a.m. Runners who wish to take the bus should check the appropriate area on the application and remit the extra fee. This is the only bus service that we provide. Runners that require a ride back to the start area will have to make their own arrangements. Also, if you drive to the start, you will have to make arrangements to get your car to the finish. There is no overnight parking permitted in the parking lot at the start. If you leave your car at the finish, please do not park in the few spaces where the trail exits the woods, as the race directors will need this area to set up the timing equipment and food tents.
