The event, readying for its ninth year in 2019, is an out-and-back trail race — much of it on single track trail. The course starts and finishes at Point Lookout Overlook in the southeastern end of Green Ridge State Forest near Little Orleans in western Maryland. The entire race is within the friendly (but wild) confines of Green Ridge State Forest.
