COURSE MARKING

While there is little chance of anyone becoming seriously lost, there is always the possibility of becoming confused as to which way you should be going -- particularly in the wooded areas where it is easier to get disoriented. For this reason we ask you to pay close attention to the course markings. All runners are responsible for knowing and following the course and taking a shortcut or skipping any part of the course is not permitted.

Marking will be done with flour, ribbons, signs and course monitors who will help at tricky intersections to make sure you are going the right way. By following these, you should have no trouble staying on course.
