Be prepared, but don’t let the distance scare you from this fun day. Climbing is only 3,000 ft, less then 100 ft per mile, and the trail moves fast. Riders will have ample support to complete this awesome day on the bike.
The enduro does not do the 5-mile start loop and finishes 32-ish miles later, approximately mile marker 37 of marathon. There will be two separate shuttle pick up points.
