The C&O Canal 100 mile race will feature one ~40 mile loop and two ~30 mile loops almost entirely on the C&O Canal towpath starting at Camp Manidokan and running along the canal between Antietam, MD and Brunswick, MD. The C&O Canal 100 course is almost entirely flat and offers plenty of opportunities for new 100 mile runners and old veterans who are up for a challenge on a beautiful course.
There will be approximately 7 aid stations placed throughout each loop, some of which you will encounter multiple times. The distances between aid stations range from 3-6.9 miles. See the websitefor a more detailed course description and the official course map
