Rocky Top 5K | The Course

Runners have a chance to spread out on asphalt before they hit single track. This course starts and ends at Public Beach #2 at Lake of the Ozarks. As soon as runners enter the trailhead, they may say to themselves, this course certainly lives up to its name. The rocky beginning leads to a beautiful large glade. After runners make their way back into the woods, they'll experience beautiful views of Lake of the Ozarks as they make their way along this single track trail. The course ends with a fast downhill asphalt finish across a pedestrian bridge to the finish line at Public Beach #2. This 5K course showcases Ozark topography well. It's technical in spots.
