The Deach March route is up to you! 

We post a list / map of cemeteries for you to visit, each of which has a time bonus. There are five mandatory cemeteries, which do not give a time bonus. You must reach all five to be an official finisher. Two of these will be drawn at random at the start line, and three are published by March 1.

NO MAPS will be given to you at the start. The best known map of the area is the National Geographic Trails Illustrated "Hoosier National Forest" map, available at Midwest Trail Ride and other outdoor retailers / outfitters in the area. You may also use electronic devices to navigate, but user beware of errors and omissions.

Most signs are located along the road and not inside cemetery grounds.  If a sign is known to be missing, we will place a temporary sign at the cemetery. Please be respectful of cemetery signs, property and headstones.
