Course:

The 13.1 course will be 90% plus single track trail at the Wissahickon. The exact layout is not finalized yet, but the course will not be flat and fast. Many rolling hills and some technical sections with rocks and roots. Need to be a bit gritty to get this done :-).
The 26.2 course will utilize most of the 13.1 course, but also sections of the forbidden drive, but the majority of the course will be single track trail.
