So I'm on the plane to Vegas last week and having composed my xmas list by way of Sky Mall in 15 minutes I'd exhausted the stellar in-flight "entertainment" supplied by the airline. BTW, when did peanuts become too expensive to include on 5 hour flights? Just wondering. Email me your answers.
Anyway. I popped open the laptop which, it turns out, was too big to use easily in the confines of row 22C and a few hand cramps later came up with this:
I know, might be tough to see. Hopefully it'll blow up nice for you. What you see here is a map of the 100K course showing the different types of terrain you'll encounter during the event.
Red = Pavement
Dark Blue = Dirt/Gravel Road/Rail Trail
Light Blue = Unimproved Road/Jeep Road
Green = Singletrack
Purple = Run-Up!!
I'll tell you that while you're out there the course may not feel exactly like this and certainly the time you spend navigating a mile of singletrack or running up Wigwam will take longer than a mile of pavement, but this gives you a pretty good picture of how the course features break down. Is it 100% exact to the meter? No. But after 9 years of working on this course, it is pretty dang close.
