Trail Information

-The 5k and 10k runners will have two road crossings while the 20k has four road crossings. All of the road crossings go straight across a rural gravel road that has very little traffic, however, the drivers do have the right-of-way so be sure the road is clear before crossing.

-The trails are a mix of single track, double track, and unmodified farm roads. Some sections have a steep camber (sideways slope) to them which makes running tough.

-The first trail bottleneck is around one mile into the course and with our small races runners never really get backed up anywhere.

-There are water stations or aid stations every 2-3 miles regardless of the distance you are running.

-Sections of the trails contain roots, rocks, and other natural hazards so it is advised to keep your eyes on the trail at all times.
