RACE SUPPORT

There will be water/sports drink stations at each transition, as well as on carts traveling on the trail. We highly recommend bringing your own fuel as well, as it is typically quite warm and you will most likely need water more often than at each transition. Water is not available every mile, but is available at the 5 Checkpoints and at every road crossing.

RACE CUT OFF

The cut off points are at Budd Rd (Transition 4) - 6 hours, Durango (Transition 5) – 7 hours and Cut off time to the finish is 8 hours. Timing chips will be pulled as these times are not met.

POST RACE PARTY

Food, beverage, music, and fun will be provided at the finish line at the Heritage Pond in Dubuque. Shuttles will also be available after the race to transport marathoners back to the Hilton Garden Inn.
