The race will start at the Backcountry camping parking area (approximately 1350 ft). It will go approximately 5 miles up the Mountain to Sea Trail. You then get to turn around and come back down! The trail is double track and heavily wooded, keeping it cooler in the summertime. The cutoff times will be generous, allowing hikers to complete the challenge. There will be an aid station up on the mountain with drinks and snacks.
