This is a NEW event for 2019. We will utilize the Marl Ravine Mountain Bike trail at York River State Park in James City County, VA. The trail will be an out and back loop.
Race start is 8am and parking is included in the registration fee.
There will be limited aid on the course and runners are encouraged to carry hydration.
The 8 mile course is 100 % trail. approx. 5 miles of the 8 mile course are technical single track. The trail features roots, switchbacks, heavy foliage, sharp turns and constant elevation change.
