 I pre road some of the route in the summer. At about the 6KM mark on the Big Lake trail, I lost trail and couldn't figure out how to continue. Will it be marked well for the race?

 Hey Thirsty, you will need to follow the GPS track from Trailforks. The course has been marked with green ribbons. Hope this helps
