The course is a well marked 25 mile loop. There is an additional 1.2 mile section for the marathon runners and now a new course for the half marathon runners. The trail is a single-track hiking trail with enough hills to make for a challenging race. There is no high altitude to contend with, no rocks to jump over, and no stream crossings to wade through, just a beautiful forest with a few roots to remind you you’re not on pavement. Crews can attend to their runners at several points.
There will be fully stocked aid stations at miles 3.9, 6.8, 10.2, 13.4, 17.1, 21.0, and 24.1. Fluids consist of water, Gatorade and defizzed Coke. Foods consist of pbj sandwiches, potatoes, bananas, cookies, candy, energy bars, GU gel, electrolyte capsules and potato chips. It’s recommended that each runner carry a water bottle. For pain relief we provide Vaseline, aspirin, band-aids, and toilet paper and Metro Health Sports Medicine to assist with any injuries.
