6 Mile

 Starts out near the main house and then cuts back downhill to the creek bottom where the race started last year. This trail is complete with a historic run down an old wagon trail that use to be the only way for people to get into Murfreesboro, TN, a couple of creek crossings, a rugged bushwhack, and a sustained climb to the top of a not-so-peaceful hill. After an enjoyable creek run, the race finishes with a scenic run to the homestead finish line where delicious beverages, food, and activities await those in need. 80 percent of this run is trail with (the other 20% on gravel).

13 Mile

You first follow the 6 mile run then take a different turn when coming back through Old Statesville Road. The trail then begins a rugged, uphill bushwhack that is both technical, and physically demanding. This portion is an incredible sample of what is gained when you take the path less traveled. After about 300 feet of elevation gain, and multiple rock garden crossings, a trail appears from the ether, and runners are brought to an aid station atop Bent Tree Hill. Bent Tree Hill sits nestled in the woods, cradled in an old stonewall. A brief downhill section leads back down then back up a different portion of the mountain called Rattlesnake Hill. Do not worry about the snakes, as the majority of them are gone this time of year but do pay attention to the rope you must hold onto so that you do not fall off the side of this steep incline. Once on top its back to some new property, which is our favorite part of the run as the trail cuts fast down hill on technical terrain! Towards the end you will enjoy a nice cruise back to the finish line for a strong finish. The 13-mile is no joke so be prepared to navigate, and be challenged.
