Staging will be at 10th & Coppei in Waitsburg. The race will be neutral for the first ½-¾ mile until after crossing the rough, angled and NOT covered railroad tracks. Caution is advised. You will encounter these tracks again on the return, but that will be after the race finish.

The course turns right on McKay-Alto Road. About 7 miles after the start, there will be a hard right turn to begin a 27-mile loop. For details on the loop, view the map. After completing the loop for the last time (some groups do the loop two to three times (see table above)), the finish line will be back on McKay-Alto Rd about 3.5 miles past the end of the loop. 

There are two sharp left turns requiring extreme caution. They are at the bottom of high-speed descents. One is 15.5 miles into the race, the other 26.5 miles. Groups doing multiple laps will go through these turns multiple times.

Feed zone is located at the top of Whetstone after turning off McKay-Alto. This is located at the start of the loop section of the course across from the grain elevator. Support personnel parking will be located at the grain elevator (left side of road); feeding will be on the right.
