The Course: For those of you who know Virgil, you know the course gets tweaked each year as I find new vistas, create new trail, or decide to take out an easy flat stretch in place of more climbing. This year's no different. It would be the easier path of least resistance if I kept the course the same each year, but, this is Virgil and from what I hear, it's not easy. Section maps and overviews to be up by summer.
Course Markings: We had more people miss turns last year than any other year despite the system being the same. My intent this year is to double up on pigtail/mining reflectors. Although it won't be possible everywhere, I'll try to have the next one in view from where you're at. If you can't see one either look more thoroughly or turnaround.
Relays: We want more relays, so register your mom and dad and bring your friends.
Welcome to upstate New York, it’s a beautiful part of the world and it will be great to have you.
