Proffessional Race Timing!
When: Spring, 2015 - 10:00AM (Registration and Packet Pick-Up Beginning at 9:00AM)
Location: Park management at Bald Mountain Recreation Area informed us at Stay in the Shade that the North Unit parking lot (used for the last 7 Mountain Man Events) is unsuitable to park cars, due to the excessive amount of snow fall this past year. For that reason the event has been moved to Bald Mountain's South Unit (approximately 5 miles from the North Unit). Please see directions and new course map below.
Access to the South Unit at Bald Mountain Recreation Area is located off Greenshield Road between US-24 (Lapeer Road) and Kern Road. The event start is located off a small park road 0.4 miles West of the Recreation Area's Offices. See the "New Directions" link for an online map.
Course: Start/Finish is south of Greenshield Rd. Course follows the "Red" trail.
