race detail

All participants must fill out a separate race waiver for the wildlife management area on race morning. The course will be well marked with turn signs and volunteers as well.


Do not google Dawson Forest WMA and use that for directions! The Dawson Forest WMA is a huge tract of land and the point where that directions will take you is miles away from the race.

(Turn Left (West) if traveling North or Right (West) if traveling South onto Dawson Forest Road.) Continue straight for approximately 3.8 miles until the intersection/stop sign. Proceed straight through intersection for approximately 1 mile to South entrance gate.
