Start Times - In order to reduce trail congestion, racers will start in waves of 35, with each wave separated by three minutes. Racers were placed in waves based on their estimated road 10K paces, with the fastest runners in the earliest waves. (Do NOT expect to match your road pace at TNT.) The first wave will start at 8:30am and the last wave will start at 8:54am. Please check the link below for your start time or ask the volunteer when you pick up your packet. Please wear your race number visibly on the front of your torso so we can make sure everyone starts at the correct time.

Directions, Parking & Shuttle
- Carpool: Parking will be extremely tight on race morning. Please carpool, if safely able to do so.
- Drive times: Plan to arrive at the parking area within Cuivre River State Park approximately 30 minutes before your start time – and not before 7:15am. When parked, please wait one minute before opening your car doors allowing time for the next car to park beside you. If you are coming from the St. Louis area, it will take 55 minutes to reach the parking area from the I-70 river crossing and 50 minutes from the I-64 river crossing. You will be about 35 minutes away when you reach the I-70/Hwy. 61 intersection in Wentzville and 10 minutes away when you reach the park entrance.
- Directions: You must enter the park through the main entrance. When you reach Troy on Hwy. 61, exit east on Hwy. 47. Drive 3.1 miles and turn left into the park on Route 147. Yield to oncoming traffic when crossing the one-lane bridge. 2.1 miles from Route 147 you will reach the Visitor’s Center and be directed to turn right onto Lincoln Hill Rd. and drive towards the parking area in Camp Cuivre. Follow the directions of the volunteers to the first open spaces and park your vehicle as efficiently as possible.
- Shuttles: There will be no shuttle service this year. The majority of parking is within a ½ mile or less of the start/finish area.
- Portable toilets will be available at the start/finish area. There will be no designated locations for personal items, however, they can be left in the start/finish area around the picnic tables. Changing tents will be available after the race.
The course will be clearly marked with flagging, directional signage, and notification signage. The flagging and directional signage will keep you on course. The notification signage will keep you safe. Course marshals will also be on course to assist with anything you need. Please take note of the signs warning of the road crossings, dangerous drop-offs, and sections of two-way traffic. Short portions of the course have two-way traffic and double traffic; please exercise course etiquette and clear communication when passing.

(1) Immediately before passing another athlete, clearly announce “On your left!” or “On your right!” and then make the pass on that side. (2) If you must listen to music while competing, please wear only one earbud and keep the volume low. During this race, you WILL need to hear what other racers and volunteers are saying. (3) Littering on the course is UNACCEPTABLE, we must leave the trail cleaner than we found it. Please help by carrying any trash you have or find to the next aid station. Aid stations will have trash cans available.
There will be an EMS crew at the start/finish area. A first aid kit and cell phone will be available at all aid stations. In case of an emergency, locate a cell phone as quickly as possible and call 911. In case of a minor injury, make your way to the closest aid station and ask them to call for a shuttle. If requested, we will gladly refund the entry fee for any participant who stops or delays their race to assist an injured athlete.
The course will close at 2:00pm. If you need to abandon the race, a race vehicle can be hailed at any aid station.
