    Hey folks, there’s been a lot of work on the Emma trail. Thanks! So I’m sure you know about the big ol’ tree about 3.4k into the Green Trail that’s blocking the way.

  3. Tom Kramer says:

    How long will each lap be in this race?

  4. Greg W. says:

    I was wondering if the race will be going into the connector; I’m not racing but plan on riding the Muir trails on that day and I usually do the connector and back too. Didn’t want to go into the middle of a race…

  5. Tim says:

    Is that the Green, Orange, or Brown loop?

  6. Cody Gunst says:

    I saw someone post their ride of the course (6.78 miles) one would assume the 80mile is 12 laps (81.36 miles)

      Cody, it was 7.3 miles according to the person who choose the race course. He was using a mapping GPS and walked the course with it. Maybe next year they will add an extra lap.

  7. Cody Gunst says:

    I was there and raced it. I have roll-out and GPS so its extremely accurate. I got 7.72miles. That included the Transition/Pit area.
