Description

Big Lefty starts out with a bit of pavement running as you warm up to the far side of the park and make your way around the baseball fields to the woods. step into trails in a field run followed by a steep down hill toward the lake Conestee; some tight singletrack in the woods and a run along the river go LEFT at the steel and wood bridge crossing the river and another LEFT brings you into the sandy / mucky bottoms on the other side of the river fun jump ups on the walk bridges and be careful on the boardwalks. following the pattern of LEFTs you'll run through hard wood groves and cross wooden bridges in swamps and a field run up to a picknik area and on to some recently paved ADA trail bring you back to the steel bridge and the final left in to the challenging last section. with some hard rocky up and down hill.
