There will be trash and recycling containers at all full aid stations and the start/finish line. Please discard any trash in an appropriate container or within 100 yards of the aid station. Intentional littering on the course will be grounds for disqualification. The course — on trails both public and private — travels past many historic sites and through areas of exceptional beauty. Help us keep them pristine.
