This year's race was held on a new (to racing) course, laid out by Rocky Reifenstuhl and Gail Koepf. Starting at their home above Farmer's Loop, the challanging course followed the section line up along a ridge. Then two 90-degree turns led along two power lines, first across slope, then down into the bottom along Grenac Road. The final climb led up through the birch trees, primarily on a narrow snowshoe trail.

The trail was in good packed condition throughout, although footing was tricky in all the sidehill areas.
