ROUGH DESCRIPTION: Main Loop – PINK

  • First 1/4 mile- thru parking lot to trail, this will help with congestion at beginning. If you plan on running this fast, start in the front! (1/2 marathon will split and do 3/4 mile green loop first).
  • Next 2.75 miles- mostly single track. This is the Hilly section of the course + 90 stairs!
  • Next 2.5 miles- mostly Flat 🙂 switching back and forth from single track to wide track.
  • Last .5 mile – single track. This will circle you around the finish area, so don’t get too excited too soon.
  • ELEVATION for each 6.2 mile loop = approx. 425 ft. gain

  • 1 GREEN loop ( .75 miles ) at beginning only
  • 2 PINK loops ( 6.2miles each ) = 850 ft elevation gain
