- You will do as many laps as possible within the two-hour time limit.
- There will be a staging area -- where you check in after each lap. This is where you will tag off to your teammate.
- You can also grab food and drinks and hang out while waiting for your teammate.
- You may bring your preferred nutrition, but we will also have a supply of water and snacks in the staging area. All items must be outside of your pack and in clear bags.
- Your team will be given a punch card – this is how we count completed laps.
- Everyone except the honorary is required to carry a min of 25 pounds in a pack or weighted vest.
Please register in the Honorary division if you would rather walk without any added weight or require a modified route.
Everyone is welcome to participate in all divisions, regardless of age, gender, or fitness level. If you have difficulty with stairs or pushing a stroller, we have an alternate course available for you. Those using the alternative course will need to register for the Honorary division.
