Lithia Loop Trail Marathon Update

Heading out along the 2060 road (approximately mile nine of the course).

In order to bid for the USA Track and Field Trail Marathon Championships in 2009, we had to accurately measure the LLTM course. So, last week Hal and Bob Holtel wheeled the entire thing. We found that the course was a little long; approximately two miles too long. So here is the revised map and profile with the new starting line and finish line posted. We'll now start at the yellow gate at the bottom of the 2060 road and finish near the upper duck pond in Lithia Park. Don't worry, we'll get you to the start line from the parking lots near Pioneer Hall via mass transit. Those details are forth coming.

We should also note that we have 42 entrants to date. This is a reminder for those that procrastinate, this marathon will fill and we can only take the first 100 entries. We will post a current list of entrants in the next few days.
