The Dire Wolf is a challenging trail run consisting of hills, rocks, roots, a rugged downhill switchback, and more hills. The course is a mix of quad-track, single-track, and grass, with a very short park road section. Despite the hills, much of the course is very runnable and offers a nice mix of terrain. Members of the Octorara Junior and Senior High School cross country teams will be stationed throughout the course to provide direction and enthusiastic encouragement.
Local time: 8:59 PM
