The date for 2017 is official: August 12. Registration is now open at Ultrasignup.
The course is going to mostly be the same as last year. The only things that might change are the hard left turn at Wild Willy which many runners missed (I blame the guy who marked the course), and the biathlon shooting range. It really depends upon the condition of the trail this year, and it’s far too early to tell. There will be updates well before the run date.
