OTHER GENERALLY RELEVANT INFO:                                                                                               

1. Your feet most likely will get wet.                                                                                                      

2.  Because your feet may get wet, there is a strong possibility sand may get in your shoes.  Well venitilated = wet and sandy on this course so plan accordingly.

3. NO LATE STARTS. Budget your time to get to Black Canyon City and catch the shuttle if you are running the 1/2 marathon.  You must start ahead of the sweep in order to receive a finish time.    

4. HEADPHONES = DQ.  This too is a safety issue.  This course consists almost entirely of singletrack with a ton of exposure.  You need to be aware of your surroundings.  When you pass someone you, they need to be able to hear you coming.  If you are found wearing headphones at any time you will be disqualified.  NO EXCEPTIONS.                                                                                                 

5. This course is awesome! If you've never been out here, be prepared for a treat :)
