The controls are marked with streamers. Streamers are likely to disappear over time, especially on the Yellow course near the lake. Please report any missing or damaged streamers so we can list them here for others.

Upon registering and accepting the waiver, you will be emailed a link to the map files. There is a separate PDF for each course. You must print your own map. Maps are designed to print at 1:15,000 scale. Orange and Yellow are laid out for letter sized paper. Green is laid out for legal size, although if you print on letter, you will still get the full course, but it will come quite close to the edge of the paper so more risk of falling off the map. The legend on the map is only complete for Green printed on Legal paper. Control descriptions are printed on the map.

Start and Finish are at the South Fork trail parking lot along Jenks Lake road. A Forest Adventure Pass is generally required to park in this lot. Please time yourself. There is nothing to punch, just streamers to find. You are on the honor system to report your fair result. If you run a second course or go back for a rerun, you can note this as a comment when submitting your result.

Barton Flats is a more technical and remote area. Please choose a course that is suitable for your experience level. This event is not recommended for first-timers. A White (Basic) course is not offered.
The courses are at high elevation which can lead to dehydration. Bring plenty of water with you. There is no water placed on the course.
Cell phone service is unreliable on this map. We recommend that you bring a buddy who will know if you finished safely. If you go alone, please make sure someone knows when to expect you home and has a copy of the map.
