Make sure that you have trail running shoes, and a light source. What works best for me is a head lamp combined with a small flash light. The trail is muddy in some places so trail running shoes are vital to help prevent you from slipping. You will follow green glow sticks the entire way. If you don’t see any glow sticks you’re going the wrong way. Don’t pass runners on the river trail.
After the race, there will be a bonfire and refreshments.
