To get there:
Driving directions from Williams Junction (intersection of highways 10 and 9): Go south on Hwy 9 for 5.7 miles. Turn right onto Lake Winona Road. Follow Lake Winona Rd for 4 miles (first two miles are blacktop, last two miles are gravel) to intersection with FSR 114 (right) and FSR 778 (straight). Go right, up the hill, and turn left into the park. If you see cars parked along FSR 114 it means the parking lot is full. Park on the RIGHT-HAND-SIDE on FSR 114. Be quiet when you arrive so as to not disturb the park superintendant.

No entry fee, no frills; there will be a waiver to sign morning of run. Water will be available every 4 to 5 miles, and there will be two aid stations with minimal aid. You are encouraged to carry a water bottle and any snacks you want. For more information, contact the race director Chris Block 501-454-1525

Rules for Lake Winona Park:
1. DO NOT park on the grass. If the parking lot is full, park on the RIGHT-HAND-SIDE on FSR 114.
2. Keep Off the spillway and levy.
3. No bike riding is allowed in the park except in the parking lot and drive.
4. Use the port-a-potties - not the park toilets.

Runner Safety:
It is always a good idea to carry a cell phone. The service is poor but most for of the course is higher up and has some service. If you are unfamiliar with the area, run with a buddy and study the Google Map. Print out the Course Map and carry it with you.

We will not be serving lunch after the race this year. Please bring your own snacks.
