This is a trail race - an out and back on great single track trail for the half and two out and backs for the marathon. The trail is well shaded with some twists and turns. There are few rocks on the trail, but there are plenty of roots on this very run-able trail. The races start at the west side of the parking lot. The course follows the trail on the west, south and east sides of the Lake. At the 6.56 mile mark runners reach the turnaround aid station at Lakeview Road at which point runners head back to the start. The course will be well marked with arrow signs and flour markings.
