Listen up! There are a few changes this year:
- NO drop bags at Ojibwa – that’s right, NO drop bags for the 80-mile, and no drop bags at Ojibwa for the 160 mile. Pack smart – don’t underestimate the weather – be prepared for extreme cold, strong wind, high humidity and everything in between. Conditions will change throughout the time you are on the trail. Bring extra layers.
- 160 mile participants will have 1 drop bag at Park Falls.
- The Ojibwa and Park Falls checkpoints will have water, pop and some food stuffs. But as always, don’t plan on a full meal at Ojibwa. At Park Falls, 160-milers will have the option to purchase food at the Bistro (the checkpoint is hosted by the Bistro). It is best for you to plan on being as self-sufficient as possible, which aligns with the spirit of the event.
- No stove, fuel, pot or calorie requirements.
- Specific light requirements – read the Gear Requirements page for full details; show up with good quality lights and backup batteries for your headlamp/bike light and red blinky lights, or you will be required to purchase them at gear check.
