Directions to the Race start: Take Sheridan Lake Rd. from Rapid City to Victoria Lake Rd. ( at MM8 on SL Rd ) make the right turn. Cross the cattle guard and continue to the intersection of Victoria & First Thunder Rds - well marked. Parking is limited: car-pooling is great and if the parking area is full... Please park along the USFS road on one side only - a well used & busy road.
