The 2017 course will be very similar to the course we used in year's past. It will feature the traditional "six-pack" barrier, a straw bale barrier that might be somewhat rideable, a stretch of sandy loam through a hoophouse, and - depending on the weather conditions - some or a whole lot of mud (check out the photos from previous editions to see how course conditions might vary, depending on the weather).
The center of the action will be right at the entrance to the farm. That's where teams can put up their tents (until 10am), where we will start and finish the free Doggie Dash and Kids Races, where we will lite up a ginormous bonfire (and keep it going throughout the day), and where - starting at noon - Hopworks Urban Brewery will be pouring free samples of their Abominable Winter Ale.
Teams are free to set up tents either on Saturday afternoon (we should have the team tent area marked by 2pm) or Sunday morning anytime between 7:30 and 10am. Depending on how wet/muddy the area is, we might have to restrict access to the team tent area to 4x4 vehicles. As for the designated location for team tents, please check the course map below.
