10k, 15K or 30K Race Course Description:

I consider the first mile to be fast, and the second mile has a climb and plateaus out. The third mile is also very fast, and the fourth mile has a climb that plateaus out at the 1st aid station. The 10K goes pass the start again. 15K & 30K fifth mile is a very fast mile (the flattest mile in the whole race). The sixth mile starts with a fast technical downhill, which is an up & back, but the end of mile six is downhill. The seventh mile has the longest climb and the next aid station. The last portion of the race will consist of a flat section, a fun fast downhill and a scenic uphill climb to the finish. If you running the 30K run you get to do all again. Check out the web page for course map, turn sheet, and pictures.

Participants:

Runners, hikers, or walkers are welcome but you must be able to complete their course in 4 1/2 hours.

10K Race is a partial loop that passes the start for the 2nd time

15K miles Race is a single loop and must reach the 3rd aid station in 3 hrs and the 4th aid station in 4 hrs. Course will be timed. Participants MUST BE Over 16 years of age for safety reasons.

30K mile Race is a double loop which is twice amount of the fun. The 1st loop must be completed in 2 1/2 hours and you must reach the 8th aid station in 4 hrs. Participants MUST BE Over 16 years of age for safety reasons.

5K walk is a easy course, but must be completed 4 1/2 hrs. Participants can be under 18 years of age.

There will be no exceptions for any participants for the cut off times.

Warning: If you cannot run/hike on the road without tripping or stumbling this race is not for you. If you haven't done much trail-running, and are primarily a road-runner, this course will provide a very unique/difficult/breath taking experience. Please visit the park and check out the course map and turn sheet before signing up.
