The Final race instructions and travel directions for the 100 mile Pioneer Trek will be published here within
a couple of days. You should also get a mailing during the week if you've already registered.
New Course venue for 2nd day of Pioneer 100:
Due to fallen tree(s?) the original course for the 2nd day had to be abandoned...
it's a long story which you'll
hear on race day... but Richie has negotiated a better course in the Alley
(Springfield) Park in Bayside, Queens. The loop will be 1.0123 miles on
macadam footpaths with 2 significant inclines. Note: this is the same
course as the 2nd day of the 2009 edition of the Pioneer.

if not, come out to Queens anyway... post entries welcome.
