Race Details


About 1/3 of the course is fire road and 2/3 is single track. The routes are fairly hilly, with a big climb out of the start, then a mix of steep and moderate grades, as well as some flatter sections. These courses are moderately hilly by trail running standards. Courses include a mix of wider and narrower trails. Most of the trails are not very twisty, but there are some parts with more twists and turns.

Parking instructions: While there is plenty of parking at the south parking lot, the start/finish parking area is not large enough to fit all runner’s cars. Cars arriving after the lot has filled will be directed about a quarter mile up the hill, giving you the opportunity to get a warmup run before the start. If you would rather do without that, please ensure to show up early! Carpooling is highly encouraged, if you are looking to share a ride please use their facebook page to sync with runners.
