Strava incorrectly measured the course over 33 miles. I have wheel measured the course to be a marathon distance! The trail is a mixture of surfaces, over half single track mountain bike trail. About 1.2 miles of pavement and the remainder dirt fire-type road. The total elevation is about 1,900 feet. Rolling terrain and some nice flat single track too. The course features many scenic views throughout!
All finishers will receive a beautiful finishers medal. Other awards will be in the following categories:
Local time: 11:48 PM
Top 3 Male and Female Overall
Top 3 Male and Female Masters (over 40)
Top 3 Male and Female Grandmasters (over 50)
