Route finding:

Follow the East Coast Trail wooden signs. When in doubt turn left, but avoid viewpoints, which are signposted “VIEWPOINT” (unless you want to visit the scenic viewpoints.)

The road sections will be clearly marked.

From the final hill down to Quidi Vidi you will need to carefully follow the people directions not the bicycle directions on the ECT signs.

Aid Stations:
There will be water and Powerade at the aid stations in Flatrock and Middle Cove. There will not be snacks & we will not be supplying cups. Please bring a water bladder and/or a cup so we can try to avoid plastic cup garbage.

Emergencies: Bring a cell phone in a ziplock bag.

IMPORTANT: Retiring from the race:
Please tell us if you are retiring from the race. If you go home without telling us we will send out search party and that is not cool for false alarms. NOT COOL AT ALL.

Logy Bay cut-off time:
15:30: You will need to be in Logy Bay by 3:30 pm to finish before dark.

Finish Line:
Inside the Inn of Olde. There will be warm food waiting and a Curly Wurly for all finishers (a 1/3 for relay runners).

There will be a prizes draw when everyone is in. It will be warm and cozy in the Inn. We hope that everyone will stick around to welcome the last finisher.
