The course consists of a 13.5-mile loop and an 11.5-mile loop, upon which runners will alternate. Each runner will complete (4) 13.5-mile loops and (4) 11.5-mile loops to achieve the 100-mile distance. Runners will start North on a 13.5-mile, counter-clockwise loop from Cool Firehouse, head west to Pig Farm and Salt Creek, south toward the American River and back into Cool. Next, they will follow an 11.5-mile loop from Cool Firehouse South toward Northside School, to Knickerbocker, to the Rim Trail, past the radio towers, back to Northside School and Knickerbocker, and back to Cool. This course is not easy, do not take it lightly.
