“A strong, technical climb, followed by flowing, rolling singletrack, and a fun descent with streams, trees, and views!”— Brynn Cunningham
Race - Oct 12, 2019
At 0.8 miles, turn left on Great Gorge spur trail (it is unmarked and NOT the main Great Gorge Trail; it is the first trail on the left after passing the main Great Gorge Trail sign.) Run uphill on singletrack, the most technical part of the race with rocks, streams and roots, for three quarters of a mile (stay left as you pass the intersection for the campground midway).
At 1.6 miles, turn left onto Kentuck Trail and run to Tharpe Knob. You'll exit the woods at about 3.0 miles into grass where you'll see a playground and pavilions. Turn right immediately and run along the tree line to the wide uphill path leading to the overlook. From the overlook, run down the fitness trail to connect back to Kentuck Trail. Turn left on Kentuck Trail at about 3.5 miles. Run along Kentuck Trail and make a right back down Great Gorge spur (the same way you ran up) at 5 miles. Remember, this is the most technical part of the trail, so tread lightly with keen eyes.
At the bottom of the hill, at 5.7 miles, turn right onto the GAP rail trail and run across the two high bridges. Turn right at the visitors center, turn right onto the street/sidewalk and cross the main road, Rt. 381, at Falls Market. Make your way back to the finish line, also the start line, running downstream along the Yough River!
The course is a lollipop and about 6.5 miles on my Garmin, a bit more than the official 10K (6.2 mi) distance, in classic trail race style.
