The colony usually welcomes competitors with fresh baked goods and words of encouragement. Last year they even served BBQ! A number of people who live in the colony have competed in the event so they know first hand what it takes to get through, and as racers are now well into the day some encouragement really helps them face the
particularly arduous trail section ahead. Cutting across open fields racers will pass close by the Mennonite Memorial Landing Site at the Junction of the Rat and Red Rivers before reaching CP6.
