All runners start at Negro Bar State Park and run on scenic single-track dirt trails with some double-track and a short distance of gravel road. The 3-mile runners will run a single loop course from the start before heading up and over the bluffs overlooking Lake Natoma where they will make a loop and head back toward the finish line. Intermediate Course runners will enjoy an out and back course continuing beyond the bluffs on beautiful tree-lined, single-track trails toward the Shadow Glen Horse Stables where they will hit the aid station at Sunset and Main before heading back toward Negro Bar. Long Course runners will continue past the aid station at Sunset and Main heading West on trails toward the Nimbus Dam Overlook. After climbing up to the Nimbus Dam Overlook (aid station #2), runners will descend and follow fun, windy single-track trails with scenic lake views before heading back toward the Shadow Glen Horse Stables area, hitting the Sunset and Main Aid Station twice before heading back to the Negro Bar State Park finish area.
