Once you get out on the course it makes a lot more sense and this map helps make it even easier to understand with the sections that are repeated and knowing which way you are going. We've also included mileage with turn by turn directions on the map itself so you can print this and carry it with you. The mileage points are approximate so don't freak out if you hit that exact mileage on your watch and you are not at a junction. GPS watches are all subject to debate based on brand and calibration. But it will give you a fairly reliable idea of whats ahead and which way you're going to be turning or not turning. The course is still marked remember, this is just another tool to keep everyone informed and aware of what is up ahead of them.
We may need to make edits or changes to this map and if so we will update on the website and redistribute. We will also have color prints of this included in everyone's race registration bag as well as available to pick up on race morning if you want to tuck one in your pack/bottle/sweaty butt pocket.
Thanks again Joe for the great map!
