At SSCC direction, Lanny and Ken wandered up 318 to mark and measure the new locations for the start line for Leg 1 (south bound) and the finish line for Leg 2 (north bound) These locations were changed from Check Point 3 due to NDOT directive. The following information is provided to update your course notes:
The new Leg 1 (south bound) Start Line is located at the Gate 53 north side reflector. There are painted arrows on each side of the road. Gate 53 is located 1.2 miles south of the Sunnyside Rest Area. The distance from the new start line to Check Point 3 (the old leg 1 NORC 2 way start line) is 1.49 miles. With the new added length the Leg 1 course distance is now 61.38 miles.
The new Leg 2 (north bound) Finish Line is located 1000 feet south of the new Leg 1 Start Line. There are painted arrows on each side of the road. The distance from the finish line to Check Point 3 (the old leg 2 NORC 2 way finish line) is 1.30 miles. With the new added length the Leg 2 course distance is now 61.19 miles
