*The 75 Mile Route is new this year! It traces the existing 90 mile route from the start but skips the 90 mile route’s out and back just past lunch. We are not offering the 65 mile route we have in the past. While the mileage may not indicate much of a difference, the new 75 mile route should NOT be viewed as ‘just’ 10 miles longer than the old 65 miler. These are very different courses.  Based on the elevation profile, the new route is longer AND more challenging.
