The race will start in the Red Top Mountain State Park Lodge Parking Lot (required for spacing) and will soon lead into the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything, rolling hills, double track, minimal roots and rocks (running surface is very forgiving). The race will utilize the Sweet Gum Trail, Homestead Trail, Campground Trail, Iron Hill Trail and Visitor Center Loop Trail. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to ´ditch the city´. This course sets up well for anyone interested in trail running but has never experienced one.
