Course Marking notes
On the roads:
The road portion of the course (that's from the start to Crystal Spring Farm) is marked with red arrows on paper. These are either stapled to telephone poles or to short (~12" tall) wood stakes.
They are positioned to be seen upon approach to a turn, up ahead.
On the trails:
The trail portion of the course (that's on the Crystal Spring Farm property) is marked with surveyor's "pin flags": bright orange flags on wire. These are stuck in the ground beside the trail ALWAYS ON THE RUNNER's RIGHT.
Turns on the trail course are marked with red arrows on paper (the same signs used to mark the roads). These are stapled to short (~12" tall) wood stakes.
The arrows are positioned to be seen upon approach to a turn, up ahead.
ALL TRAIL TURNS are flagged with THREE PIN FLAGS on approach and THREE FLAGS after the turn.
To repeat: Single pin flags mark the course on-going. Triples mark course turns in the trail

I was out at the farm again today and took some photos of the details and the big picture (and big sky).
