Add $10 if you want bus transportation to the start and please indicate such on your registration form.

The first bus will leave Ashland Marketplace at 6:15 am on Sunday, September 5. Buses will leave every 15 minutes thereafter, provided they are full. The last bus will leave at 7:00 am.

There is very limited parking at the start of the race in Freeland. You can arrange your own drop off at the race start (see directions) or you can ride the bus from the race day registration and finish area @ Ashland Marketplace.

Because of fuel costs we are being charged a great deal more for bus rental and therefore the fee for the bus is greater for each runner. Last bus will leave from Ashland Marketplace @ 7:00 AM and bus transportation is not guaranteed for race day sign ups.


The course is 20 Miles down grade on the North Central Trail. The NCT is a hard packed dirt surface and part of the "Rails To Trail" program. The trail is open to casual runners, horse riders and bikers during our event. Please be gracious to all. This is the same trail used for the Northern Central Trail Marathon. This race is a great training or peak event to prepare for a Fall Marathon. Course maps available at Packet Pickup for family members with driving directions to various viewing sites. See Map of NCT.
