Race Day Information
Aid stations will be set up periodically for the 17 mile canyon run. They will be self serve and CUPLESS.
This means you are responsible for carrying your own bottle(s), hydration packs and cups. The course is a down-and-back, beginning at the Clark Pioneer Rec Center. The course is a paved road with a few hills. The entire course is Stroller Friendly!
For the 17 mile Canyon Run, a designated area will be set up prior to the finish (about 1 mile from the finish) where you may place a bag to change into. For example: Military Boots, Ruck Sack, Firefighter helmet, etc. Please be sure to put your name on your bag!
You can either drop your bag off at this spot before the start of the race, or leave your bag at the check in and a race coordinator will take it to the drop off spot.
Regulations for Event Participation
In Clark, we never know what the weather will be like – it could be chilly, hot or windy! Come prepared with layers.
We also recommend running with bear spray and your phone. The course is completely paved, but this is bear/wild animal country.
By registering for this event, you agree that the Clark Pioneer Rec Center, the Clark Volunteer Fire Department and vendors/participants are not liable for any damages, losses, or health issues.
