Course info:

2020-2021 offered a redesigned course. The original course was mostly fire roads throughout the park. Although beautiful, we always intended more of a trail event. With the building of some new hiking trails and a redesign of the course we feel we have a great course waiting for you. We have also tweaked a few miles from 2021 to even improve on the re-design.

The new course has a loop course for the 10k and a larger loop for the1/2 marathon. The races will cover the first 10k together. This newer course will give you more picturesque views and a better trail race experience!  The newest built trails, on the 1/2 marathon course, are very runnable with good footing most of the way. You will be finishing your last 4+ miles on these beautiful trail (Coop and Trooper Trails).

Aid stations will be approximately 3, 6 and 9 miles. 

Bathrooms:  There are two indoor bathrooms available near the start/finish.  One is located behind the soda machines (on the right side of the main lot) and the other near shelter #2 between the lot and the staging area.
