Description
# 50 M Ultra Start: 6:15am. It will be light!

There will be one early start (for 50 MILE only)...at 5:30. It will be dark. Bring a headlamp...drop it at the Dumpster drop area.

# 50 K Ultra Start: 7am.

# Check-In: Ultra runners must check in Friday night or Saturday morning, before the start. Number bibs & last minute information will be handed out. Friday Check-in is from 4-9 PM at Mikes Music and Dance Barn. Saturday-race day opens at 5 AM. Try to make the Friday Check-in!

# Daily Park Pass: You must have daily or annual state park permit on front window to enter the park or for family or handlers to follow you around the course. The race starts and finishes outside the park so no permit is needed to run. We will have passes if your support staff is entering the park, just ask for one at registration if you have support staff! Support, be prepared to assist the volunteers while you hang around. Please obey the parking signs and volunteers, even if they seem irrational!

# Parking: Expect parking insanity, handlers must park in designated areas.

# Dirt Numbers: All runners must wear race number visible on the front. Ultra numbers will be different than relay teams.

# Thank the Volunteers & Sponsors: Running the race is easier!

# Shameless Plug: Shop at Running Fit! Buy Nike Running Shoes! www.runningfit.com

# Camping: NO CAMPING AT START/FINISH AREA! See browncountystatepark.com - Brown County State Park - Try to get a spot all the way out on Raccoon Ridge, so you're surrounded by other DWD (Obsessed) runners.

# Hotels: Brown County Inn, Green Valley Lodge (Clean & cheap! 1-800-205-8369) or any Nashville, IN hotel. Also, only 16 miles to the exit of I-65 and Hwy 46, Columbus, IN. Lots of hotels.

# Awards & Refreshments: Awards ceremonies, food (Pig roast & pizza!) and refreshments at the finish area. Bring some cash for beer and help out Mike! Country Band and Pig roast, 2:30 - 6: 30 PM.

# Ultra Awards: Top 5 in each 5-year age group for each event presented immediately when you finish.
