HURT100 Course Map
Multiple formats are available as discussed below. However, remember that all these maps are for general reference only. The errors in GPS measurements in the map and from your device in the mountains are often larger than the distance to a cliff edge or other hazard. Thus, while very useful to ensure you still on the race route and going in the right direction, you must constantly look out for trail hazards.
- This is recommended for those not very familiar with the course.
- Detailed directions below.
- While it takes a few minutes to set up with a free app with your smart phone, using these will allow you to see your current location in relation to the course map in real-time. If set up ahead of time, this functionality is available while offline or in airplane mode (to save battery).
Maps from Book of HURT
- We recommend you print out the maps from the Book of HURT and carry them with you.
