Due to the construction taking place at Elk River’s Woodland Trail system, we are planning on modifying the race from our normal routine. Please see the attached trail map.

3 loops, 2 shooting stages, PS.
30 second flat penalty, no loops.

Younger/novice race categories may have a shorter race depending on coach/athlete decision.
