The runs are 80% trail and they do not have any significant elevation changes but crosses up to a dozen creeks and have numerous short hills. There will be a 7 1/2 hour cut off time for the 50K based on the runners arrival at the 35K aid station in 5 hours. (There will be aid stations about every 5 miles ).
