Q: I've never done a trail run before. Is this a good place to start?
A: It's a toughie, but if you can run a 1/2 marathon on the road and are comfortable carrying your own food and water, you should be good for at least a lap. (Each lap is 20 kilometers.)
Q: Do I need to print off course instructions and bring them with me?
A: Yes. Otherwise, we guarantee you will get lost!
Q: What if I get lost?
A: You shouldn't get lost! Follow the route directions. If you do feel you are lost, ask a mountain biker or backtrack to the last place you saw a runner.
Q: What if I have to heed the call of nature.
A: There is a public washroom at the start/finish in Panorama Park. If you have to go on the trail, be discreet, do your business at least 10 meters from the trail and bury anything solid at least 10 cm deep.
Q: What should I bring on race day?
A: Please check the agenda for thoughts
Q: I am supposed to be self-sufficient because there is no aid provided. Can I get a friend to come out and give me food and drink along the route?
A: Absolutely! In fact, it would be nice if your friend were to help everyone. See aid stations and crew for some thoughts on what they might be able to do.
Q: Where can I park? Where can I change?
A: There is parking at Panorama Park.  In the morning you should find a spot without problem.  Later the parking lot tends to be full.  There is a public washroom with change facilities and an outdoor shower (cold).
