    Seeing that the 5k and 8k are set for the same time, what are the loops going to be? 2km loop x4 with a truncated 3rd loop for the 5k runners?

    Ouch...Looks like a strong possibility of the coarse being a mud fest by the time the Championship races are run. I am only going by past experience watching many a runner go down on switchbacks @ Nationals. Really hope race organizers have found a way to alter the coarse to eliminate this problem.

    8k registrants will run the women's course (2x2.5 and 2x 1.5). 5k registrants will head into the finish at the end of the 2nd 2.5k loop.

    Totally agree. With all the other races prior to the Championship races... it gets really sloppy & messy! They should run those on a separate trail next to the finals course .... not breaking'it in :(
