All runners should prepare to be able to carry enough water to hold them 6-7 miles at at which could be 2-3 hours if walking/hiking. Also be aware that if you drop in this race you will need to do so at an aid station. You will also understand that you will not be taken in from the course as we will have to come out and get you.
