The course consists of a 10.7-mile east loop and 10-mile west loop through the forested 2,110-acre South Mountain Reservation. Following along the valley floor and the two ridges, the course includes long stretches of double-wide gravel roads, technically challenging, meandering single-track hiking trails with roots and rocks, and a short, half-mile stretch of pavement. It is a good combination of level paths, rolling hills, moderate climbs, and a few very steep ascents, The east and west loops total 1,300 feet of ascent. Ten and 20-milers will use the west loop; 50K and 100K runners will use both loops.
Aid stations and drop bag are every 5-6 miles with water, Hammer Heed, Hammer Gel, granola bars, pretzels and other snacks. If you have a special request, please let us know; we will do our best.
