The course will reward and delight racers of all ability levels from novice to experienced teams with fantastic terrain and spectacular views. Course design will feature a modified rogaine format which will allow teams to collect optional CPs at their discretion. The team with the most points at the end of the 18-hour race will be crowned TLD champions.The Longest Day is also a USARA National Qualifier as well as a regional qualifier for the North American Adventure Racing Series.
