This course consists of extremely rocky mountain trails, mud, and creek crossings, not to mention the 3,872 feet of climbing!! There is a vertical climb on the course that requires the use of your upper body.
A map of the current (updated for 2014) course can be found at here.
Expect anything...including cancellation due to inclement weather (the mountain can ice over)! Temperatures can range from 10 to 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The race may be cancelled due to snow and ice conditions. If roads are impassable the race may be cancelled. This situation is beyond our control and is not predictable. The decision to cancel the race will be made by the HTC board.
There will be six major aid/check-in stations equipped with the usual stuff, water, PowerAde, soda, candy, pretzels and junk. It is recommended that you carry at least one bottle of fluids with you the entire run.
