MARATHON COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Wildwood Trail Marathon starts on the asphalt Hamilton-Carr Trail which takes runners to the chat surfaced Al Foster Memorial Trail. The Al Foster Memorial Trail will take marathoners to the Bluff View Trail, where they will climb to the bluff that gives the trail its name!
After leaving the first aid station on the course, runners will proceed back down the Bluff View Trail and spend a number of gorgeous miles doing the entire Rock Hollow Trail. Racers will then leave the Rock Hollow Trail and run the entire length of the Al Foster Memorial Trail to the Sherman Beach Trailhead. From Sherman Beach, runners will take a connector trail to the Cedar Bluff Trail and return to Sherman Beach on the Stinging Nettle Trail. Once reaching Sherman Beach for the last time, competitors will travel on the Al Foster Memorial Trail and Hamilton-Carr Trail to the finish of the Marathon at LaSalle Spring Middle School.

The course is a combination of approximately 2 miles of paved greenway trail, gravel, dirt and 90 percent single track with enough rocks and roots to keep you present with approximate ELEVATION GAIN of 1700ft!

PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A TRAIL MARATHON AND NOT YOUR ROAD 26.2 SO YOU WILL BE RUNNING 26.2-ISH MILES.
No Wimps, No Whining!
