MAPS: You are responsible for knowing the course.  We will mark the course very well with ribbons and arrow signs, but there is always the possibility that someone will tamper with markers, you might run past a key turn, or that you might still come to an intersection where you are unsure how to proceed. You can always print out a map and bring it with you on race day to refer to if you are unsure.  Studying the maps can keep you from getting off course on race day!
