Both distances basically go uphill on dirt roads for the first half, then generally downhill on single-track for the second half “with a surprise along the way.” The half marathon has three aid stations (roughly at miles 3, 7 and 10) with water and electrolyte drinks. The 10k passes two of these aid stations (at miles 3 and 4). Carry your own fuel, but note that you will be disqualified if you drop trash on the trail.
Post-race festivities will include food, music and Deschutes beer on the lawn of the 7th Mtn Resort or in a heated fest tent. Awards are given to the top three overall male and female finishers as well as the top male and female masters.
