With the help of some of our best volunteers, we have adjusted the course again, to help break the monotony of multiple loops. The course now consists of a 13.7-mile loop and a 11.3-mile loop, upon which runners will alternate to achieve their given distance. Runners will start east on a 13.7-mile, counter-clockwise loop from Cool Firehouse, east to Pig Farm and Salt Creek, toward the river and back into Cool. Next, they will follow a 11.3-mile, clockwise loop from Cool Firehouse toward Northside School, to Knickerbocker, to the Rim Trail, past the radio towers, back to Northside School and Knickerbocker, and back to Cool.
There will be aid stations at approximately miles 4.5, 10.2, 13.7 (start/finish), 16.1, 18.75, 23.2, and 25 (start/finish), with additional water drops at miles 9 and 11. Runners electing to withdraw at an aid station will receive credit for distance completed to that aid station.
The course consists of single track and fire roads.
Participants will be required to remain on the trails and within the course boundaries so as to not disturb the natural surroundings. Runners need be conscious of the terrain and exercise care in foot placement.
