RACE COURSE

8.55 - GPS unit measures course at 8.33 miles; Calibrated Bicycle Computer "wheel" measures course at 8.55 miles. Please note GPS Units do not capture every twist and turn in the woods as bicycle wheel does roll every twist and turn. Race will start on the powerlines (Entrance "B") and then lead into the woods. The trail running surface is a mixture of smooth easy to navigate along with some technical sections (rocks and roots). The 8.55 milers and 3.1 milers stay together until the .25 mile mark... 8.75 milers turn hard left (after the bridge) and onto your sweet trail run! Please note the race will be run in a "counter clockwise direction"). This course and venue is one of our favorites! This event will start in Entrance "B" (if you leave the main entrance of the park turn left, Entrance "B" is 1 mile on the left). When you get into Entrance "B" drive all the way to the lower parking lot for registration and the start / finish!
