NEW PARKING ARRANGEMENT FOR 2018:
Due to multiple construction projects and parking restrictions along Hwy. 28 adjacent to the finish area. All race parking will be at Spooner State Park. There will be no race parking at the finish area. Friends and family that come to support you and watch you finish must park along HWY 28 in Incline Village. Everyone who purchased a shuttle pass will then be shuttled from the finish back to Spooner State Park to their vehicles.
- No pre-race shuttle, only a post race shuttle. If you have already purchased a pre-race shuttle it will be carried over to the post race shuttle.
- $10 entry fee into Spooner State Park. It would be prudent to carry exact change to prevent a backup at the front gate before the start. We start on time.
- No parking allowed at Tunnel Creek Cafe. Parking in front of the Cafe is for customers only. Having a good working relationship with the Cafe and Flume Trail Bikes provides for a great finish line venue and atmosphere. Please do not jeopardize this partnership. Thank you for your cooperation.
Shuttle passes can be purchased for an additional $12. All participants must park at the start located at Spooner State Park and then take the post race shuttle back after they finish or make other arrangements to be dropped off/picked up. Shuttle passes must be purchased in order to use the shuttle.
You are welcome to have someone drop you off at Spooner State Park but be aware that there is a $10 entrance fee. You may have someone pick you up at the finish but they must park along the shoulder of the southbound lane of Hwy. 28 in Incline. There will be post race shuttle to transport participants from the finish at Tunnel Creek Cafe/Flume Trail Bikes back to Spooner to retrieve their cars but a shuttle pass must be purchased. Shuttle times leaving the finish start at 11:30am. There will be additional shuttles at the top and bottom of the hour until 1:30.
There will be 2 aid stations out on the course. The Marlette Dam Aid Station is at 5.6 miles from the start and Tunnel Creek Aid Station is located 10.3 miles from the start. Both aid stations will be stocked with water and an array of snack type food for refueling. This is a no cups event, meaning that there will be no cups at aid stations, so every runner must carry their own water bottle.
The finish area is a welcome sight (and site)! We have tents, tables, snacks, Porta Potties and local brew for your relaxation and enjoyment. Rowdy Bar Reps will be there and as always, there’s the yummy and more nutritional post-race food to purchase at a discounted rate at Tunnel Creek Cafe. Please read below.

We recommend that you be at the landslide, ~midway on Flume(~mile 8), by this time.
