Wasatch Speedgoat 50K

This is a tough one to map because of the intestinal loops, so bear with me.

There are two overview maps.  The first one gives you just the course.  The second one gives you the course with color codes in order: first 18.2 miles in RED, 18.2 to 25 (including the tunnel) in BLUE, and the last five miles in YELLOW.   This should give you a good view of how the course unfolds with a big picture.

The detailed maps are hyperzoomed and show mile posts at every tenth of a mile.  They look like this: "SG11".  This means Speedgoat Mile 1.1.  SG269 is Mile 26.9.  Get the idea?  Your other option is to use the course directions to get the ebb and flow of the course.

Sorry that we didn't get something done with cute arrows and all, but we just finished GPSing the course last Saturday, and it has been tough to throw it all together so fast.  But it looks like a killer course!
