50K COURSE – Starts and finishes at the Chippewa Moraine Center. It is an out and back course. You start right in front of the center and within 100 yards you have your first decent which then becomes a nice little hill greeting you at the finish. The first three miles and the last three miles are the trails of the “Circle Loop” from the center. The remaining miles are all ran on the Ice Age Trail. The first 5 miles of the course is marked with mile markers which will be used then as a countdown of miles to go as you come back. The course from the start is marked with orange survey flags on your right on the way out which then on the way back, the flags will be on our your left. At intersections and road crossing you need to “connect” the flags on which way to go. You will have to cross Cty Road M twice so please use caution at this intersection. There is many, many, many little hills on the course with some roots and rocks.
