Description

The course starts by the boat launch and runs up the paved entrance road for a 0.25 miles. Then runners turn right up County Line Road for about 0.5 miles to where it turns onto Right Alternate, and the singletrack begins all the way to the finish. Overall, this is a very rolling course with two short but steep hills. Footing is very good for a trail race. There is an aid station located just over 1 mile in. It is unmanned and will have water only. It is suggested to carry your own fluids for this event.
