If this race doesn't conflict with the Cookie Half next year, I'm going to plan on making it to Grand Forks.
The trail section is complicated. There are numerous forks that will take you off the route. There are volunteers to guide you on and off the trail but once on the trail you have to be observant and watch for markings on the surface. Since markings mostly only exist near junctions, the lack of markings can either mean you are just between junctions or you have left the route.
