Being that there is really no crew access to the course if you could provide a list on the website of the food that is supplied at the aid stations. I wouldn’t consider Gatorade a suitable Electrolyte drink. That is what I was told was provided by an aid station volunteer.

I was disappointed there was not much “lake” in the Marlette Lake 10M. I was a little surprised we are running by or near Spooner, Marlette, and Tahoe but only caught bare glimpses of them. This was a forest trail run, not a lake run.My other feedback is that I didn’t love having to carry my t-shirt (and other gear if I wanted it, like a glass or hat) the whole way. The organizer said she would be all packed up by the time we got back. If there is a full lunch and grill and all, couldn’t we have merch tent at finish line? Instead my t-shirt was flapping at my waist the whole time.Lastly, little to no communication. I signed up but never received a single details email about it. I tried to park at the paid lot but wasn’t informed ahead of time that it was cash only. I had to turn around and park at the other recommended lot, by the road. I took the trail in (as recommended) and had to ask trail-goers which way was the main parking lot because there were no signs. I reached the main parking lot, the one that requires cash, but had to continually ask people where the start line was, where I pick up my bib. Please consider there are many paths on the trail and at the parking lot and, especially early in the morning when people don’t know their way around and trying to hustle to start line, people need more communication, not less. Half a dozen a-frame billboards with signs and arrows would address this.

Aid stations were underwhelming. I was really looking forward to pb&j lol. But the water and Gatorade were awesome. The middle miles had zero markers. I seriously thought we were lost and going the wrong way. It all worked out though!Will definitely be back next year. Great job to all!

It was a great event. Loved the course. The only problem is that I was put in the men's division instead of the women's on the result page. Nancy King. I think I would have gotten 3 rd in my age group

Hi there. Packet Pick-up is only on Sunday from 6-7am and unfortunately you can not park at Spooner Lake with an RV. You could try for something nearby. The best recommended spots are near the HWY 50 and HWY 28 intersection! :)
