4-6 dog teams will start leaving at 11am (no exceptions - if you don't think your dogs will enjoy being passed take 'em in the Twister a few times, after 15 or so passes per race they'll soon be used to it), 7+ dog teams to leave directly after. 2 minute intervals
Jon and Laura rode their "Iron Dog" over the course with a GPS today and started flagging - orange and green, like last year. It is 23 miles, and climbs 1900', and then descends 1900'.
