Description [Suggest Changes]

Runners will begin in Cloudland Canyon State Park. There will a small amount of road running from the start to help separate the runners. They will then complete a 8+ mile loop, before heading out on a series of singletrack trails to the turn-around, then head back to the finish. Starting at 9:00 A.M., runners will catch the sunrise over the canyon, and also view the beautiful Cherokee Falls.
