Two Port a Potties will be ordered to handle sanitation needs of the runners. Food for the event will be provided by a catering service that will cook with Dutch Ovens on site.

At the request of Travis Rollins to minimize the amount of traffic on specific trails during peak times we have identified new trails to use for our trail race on 6/2/2012. We would like to modify the event name and change it from the Horsetooth Mountain Trail Race to Courting Towers. I have submitted new course maps and the event will host an 8 mile and a 13 mile trail race starting at the Soderberg Open Space Trailhead.
