Camping at the start/finish area:
Unfortunately there is no camping at the start/finish area of the race due to restrictions from the US Forest Service. Some have slept in their car overnight and since we have race officials there throughout the night if you have any problems just come wake one of us up. There is also tent camping in two other areas within walking distance of the start/finish area and when you arrive at packet pick-up Friday evening we can direct you to those two areas.
