COURSE INFO & MAP
The 10.7 Miler
You will begin at 8:30 am on a gravel road then enter the woods onto a flat to rolling Yellow loop. Once you reach the first stream, you will find a few more hills but also a lot more of the beautiful scenery the park has to offer. You will cross the famous Henry Mill Falls then start a slow climb through a moderately challenging and technical Red loop. We will bring you back over the falls where you will complete the Yellow loop to the flat finish and back to the field where we started.
The 3.7 Miler
We will start you at 8:40 am on the same gravel road as the 10.7 miler but send you off in the opposite direction. You will run about 0.3 miles before entering the rolling Yellow #7 trail. This brings you to the other side of the gravel road where you will then enter the woods for the rolling Yellow loop. You will have the same flat finish section as the 10.7 miler and exit the woods at the field.
