Miles of trails through the Gifford Pinchot National Forest and surrounding timberlands make the Wild Woman trail run a favorite. This year you can pick from three options: marathon, marathon relay (with teams of up to 4), and a 50K ultra for individuals who are ready to jump (well, run) to the next level. The course is essentially one big loop with aid stations every 4-7 miles. There are 6 total aid stations (7 for the 50K) providing water, electrolyte drinks, and snacks.
There are four legs to the marathon relay with three exchange points. You can have two to four people on your team. If you want to run the entire marathon and still be part of a team, you must run the first leg of the relay for your team.
Start at Wild Women race headquarters (ultramarathoners will start earlier than the rest as we will add an extra 5-mile loop for them at the beginning, details TBD.)
Leg 1: 7 miles (moderate)
Leg 2: 4.6 miles (moderate)
Exchange point 2
Leg 3: 8 miles (moderate to hard)
Exchange point 3
Leg 4: 6.6 miles (easy to moderate)
