The fields are flat and inspected prior to the race but all ruts, tire tracks, holes, mud and other naturally occurring changes can not all be prevented. Also, Trail Shoes are not required but older/dirty shoes are recommended especially if rain has fallen within a week before the race.
The Rows of Hell will be run through the middle of a cut field weaving throughout, running down rows and through rough terrain. This terrain is not level in any way and conditions could be dry to very muddy. Also, consider bringing a long shirt and running pants for this section.
