We acknowledge and respect those who experience their gender identity in ways outside of the traditional male/female dichotomy, and are trying our best to provide non-binary opportunities in both the registration and results to reflect that. For the purposes of awards, non-binary runners will be eligible in their birth gender pool.
There will be 1st-3rd Male & Female awards in both races in the following categories for each distance:
- Under 40
- Masters (40-49)
- Grandmasters (50+)
Runners are highly encouraged to come camp! A plethora of campsites along with a few cabins are available. Both are available Thursday through Saturday, and may be selected as an Add-On when registering, or purchased separately later through the race store. We will be offering dinner Thursday-Saturday in the camp dining hall, a community campfire, and want to make this a fun, family-friendly weekend outing for all!
The campground is primitive, with each site typically equipped with a tent pad and bear box, along with a tap for running water and pit toilets available in each site cluster. Depending on the number of people opting to camp, we may open up a back lot for dispersed camping as well. Each site does not have its own dedicated parking spot, but parking is generally available throughout the campground within a few hundred yards.
Cabins consist of individual rooms in a pair of 6-plex buildings. Each room is separate with its own entrance/exit. There are two sets of bunk beds (four total twin mattresses) in the room, along with a couple nightstands/dressers. Plan to bring your own blankets/sheets. The rooms have lights, electricity and heat. Bathrooms are located 50-100 yards away, and showers are another 200 yards beyond. Cabins are available first-come, first-serve. We won’t have the staff to turnover cabins mid-stay, so you are simply renting out the room for the weekend, and are welcome to sublet if you desire. (The main reservation holder will be responsible for the replacement fee if the key is lost, though).
Modern bathrooms with running water and flush toilets are available at the Coral Rock Dining Hall, which will be open 24/7 and is 100-600 yards from all cabins and campsites. Hot showers are available at the camp shower house (200 yards closer to the campground / further from the cabins). Bring your own towels and soap. Note that the camp relies on pumping and treating its own well water, so please be conscious of your usage.
Also note that pretty much the entire camp is without cell phone service (which we think is a great attribute to build community :).
