All routes meet up with one another, so…

We will all meet up at the same endpoint, the Undoukouen, by about 4pm

*~*~*If you aren’t interested in hiking, but would like to volunteer to help*~*~*
If you have a driver’s license and a car, we need on-call drivers in case:
– someone gets too tired to keep walking
– someone has to quit
– a medical emergency arises
– stragglers need picking up once the event ends
If you would like to volunteer but don’t drive, we could use you to help:
– man checkpoint stations
– hand out water
– ride-along with emergency drivers and check in with runners/hikers
– cheer hikers on at various starting points
Let us know if you are interested in coming up to Shimokita the night before! Accommodations can be arranged.
If you want to stick around Sunday, we’ll be having chill team-activities like volleyball, red rover, and other such tom-foolery as we enjoy the fresh Shimokita air!!
