We have a wonderful course of woodland trails filled with natural beauty. You will enjoy our breathtaking scenery and quiet country atmosphere. The course is hilly, and the footing is generally excellent – very runnable. There are a number of stream crossings, and just a few rocky areas. The trail contains only about 1 mile of pavement each way – to get from the Ruritan (base camp) to the trailhead and from the trailhead back to the Ruritan. It contains about 1/3 of a mile of pavement during the race, just before stop 3. Less than 2 miles of the course is run on gravel roads.
