BHT mushroomsPost race hot soup: Judith Karpinski
Course setter: Jeff Saeger

There are 2 water stops, the first (at 6.7Km.) with cookies.
Four road crossings, please look and cross safely.

Please note two OUT OF BOUNDS areas marked on the maps.
The first is the golf course near the route from 2 to 3. Please do not run up onto the golf course as a route choice, (no marking in the terrain). It is OK to run in the woods adjacent to the golf course.
The second is at the bottom of the ski slopes, a construction area. It is marked off in the terrain.

A word about the course design.

There is one butterfly loop. The purpose of this is to break up the field of runners. Every runner will do both of the loops, but in different order. Therefore there is a common control in each set of loops. This control will be visited 3 times. Be careful that you follow the correct numerical sequence, and not the runners around you!
