Runners will run on the historic Western States trail, out to No Hands Bridge then tackle one of the toughest climbs in the area, and training grounds for top runners, the dreaded K2 training hill. The 10K will head back to the Finish area along the Olmstead Loop Trail, while the Half and 30K tackle another tough, but fun, section... heading back down to the American River and back up the Auburn-Cool Trail (also known as the "Dam Hill"). The long series of switchbacks will bring you back to the Olmstead Loop, where Half runners will trudge to the finish. The 30K runners will do a bonus loop, traversing meadows, single track, and farmland rolling hills until you reach the finish at the Cool Firehouse.
Carpooling is highly encouraged. Bring some collapsable chairs for yourselves and hang out for a bit post-race.
