There are no trail fees.
There is no electricity at the venue. Teams are encouraged to set up their wax tables to the north of the start/finish area (near the warming hut).
There is no running water at the venue. Teams are encouraged to bring their own water and water bottles. We will have some water and sports drink, but it will be limited. GMNC encourages its users to bring their own water bottles or cups in an effort to reduce waste.

There will be a 15 minute protest period after the posting of the unofficial results.
There will be at least 4 technique controllers on the classic course on Sunday.
