Start Camp Location: (It is very near the bike route's 1st checkpoint.
Here are the coordinates - (35.395493, -111.756143). It is not far from the 180.
The actual camp site might not be exact depending on the trees, but we'll be on the left side of the road and before the cattle gate. So if you go over the cattle gate, you missed our camp.

Try to get to our Start Camp as early as possible on Friday, digital event trail maps are attached below this post please download the files. I suggest using the app Gaiagps as it is free and the files will work. Files will work with most gps apps if you choose to use something else.

You can review the map online here at this link ->

I am not sure when we will be handing out printed maps and checkpoint assignments so if you can print one from home. My plan is for you to check in at the Nordic Center to get one. Volunteers we will need to be ready and posted before 7:00 am, rain or shine, at their assigned checkpoints. For the new volunteers, we are not to be on trail after 7:00 am which interferes with riders, only in an emergency situation are we to be driving on the trail. All emergencies must be transmitted and received by event Net Control.

Stay tuned! There will be an updated trail map which includes a bit more info and some gps files you can use with a few different APPs. Also, if you haven't already please fill out the volunteer form and check the AZXC box.

Thank you!
