Miles of trails through the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and surrounding timberlands make the Wild Woman trail run a favorite. You can pick from three options: 50K, marathon, marathon relay (with teams of up to 4). The course is essentially one big loop with aid stations every 4-7 miles. There are 6 total aid stations (7 for the 50K) providing water, electrolyte drinks, and snacks.
There are four legs to the marathon relay with three exchange points. You can have two to four people on your team. If you want to run the entire marathon and still be part of a team, you must run the first leg of the relay for your team.

In an effort to reduce paper waste, please bring your own waterbottle to refill at the aid stations; we do not provide cups as we are working hard to be a waste-free event.
