“A challenging marathon in a beautiful mountain setting.”— Kristen Arendt
Featured Race - May 19, 2019
Runners will take a right onto the Pennsylvania Gulch where they will face challenging climb to connect back up with the Switzerland Trail. After taking a left back onto Switzerland Trail, runners will wind through the woods around the base of Bald Mountain before heading on a short climb up Sugarloaf Mountain. Runners will be able to enjoy the views from the top of Sugarloaf Mountain and catching their breath on the way back down.
From Sugarloaf, the course continues on Switzerland Trail back to its junction with Gold Hill Road where racers will turn right to head back down to town and the finish line at Gold Inn.
