Hey guys I did registered for the half enchilada a while ago hoping also to hit the trails there to know the course, but never did... I will be leaving to go to Italy and will return on the 27 of December so this is what I am asking, who is willing to come wit me at the was before the race to show me the trails?

Is the course announced yet?  Whole or half?

I know the trails... Not the route.

I think they keep the route a secret until day of. It’s a feature, not a bug.

Last year they posted the route about 2 weeks before the race. Then they changed it slightly the day of the race, I think. 

They started everyone out on the gravel trail around the access road to spread everybody out. They also sent waves of riders out to help spread out the pack, worked pretty well.  They will probably do the same this year.

For the whole, you ended the race riding East Main, I'd be happier if we started on that when I was fresher.

Courses are up on the USNWC website. Looks like about 24 miles for the half and 43 for the whole

Last year I'm pretty sure it rained a bit the week leading up to the race and they held it anyways, as what seems to be the typical case with race days.

Rode about 80% of the course yesterday. The trails were actually in good shape but Prairie Dog was a mess and also the field section on Bandit. Honestly after riding out at Catawba for 20 years, in all types of conditions I have to finally say that slipping, sliding, and skidding through a thorny field was still fun but I wouldn't do the race if conditions are the same on race day. I've gotten to a point that the wear and tear on my drivetrain is just not worth it anymore. 
Lets all just hope the rain gives up trying to drown us.

ciao

I guess Upper Thread and the Needle will be open by then?

Also wondering, I don't see anything about aid stations/water stops anywhere on the maps.  43 miles self supported?

I think there was 2 of them last year. There was one when you came out of Toilet Bowl and then I think the other one was when you came out of Academy and have to go back into Academy, near the parking lot and gravel road.

Mebbe I'll hit them up on FaceBook to update the site or course.  That's great info to know when you're riding 43 miles.

Cobbler served on a rabbit?

Assuming if you're old, you remember this USNWC delicacy.
