Volunteer Requirement Change
In order to help this wonderful sport grow, Iron Legs wants to support racers and races. So, starting next year there will be a four hour volunteer requirement at an ultra running event. Our hope is that this will help people get more involved with supporting races in capacities other than just racing and give back to a community that only strives to give.
The new course starts at Stations Flats and heads up to the summit of Powderface before dropping down to the Little Elbow Campground. Racers will then make their way up Ford Knoll before continuing up Ford Creek to the connector trail and up the backside of Powderface to Powderface Saddle before dropping back to the Powderface parking lot. From here the trail will head back along Elbow Valley Trail and Sulphur Springs before heading up Pneuma and then to the saddle below the summit of Moose Mountain. Racers then head back downhill to the finish, following the Moose Mountain trail before turning off on Moose Packers, down to Ridgeback and into Station Flats for the finish.
