Each course includes a short section of paved trail (about .4 miles) with the majority of the courses being on fire trails and the half marathon including sections of single track trail.
Note: A broken water line has caused the collapse of some portions of the "dog run" trail, which is the normal start for all distances of our Badger Cove races. We have been informed that the trail cannot be guaranteed to be open on race day for vehicles or runners and so we are being required to use an alternate course. The maps below show those alternate courses. These will still offer spectacular trails and views and they will be of comparable difficulity to the original courses. The half marathon course also has the advantage of being a single (rather than double) loop.
Half Marathon: 8:00 am
10K: 8:25 am
5K: 8:45 am
The half marathon will start at 8:00 am and the course will have a time limit of 4.5 hours. Half marathon runners must reach the 4th aid station (mile 8.2) by 10:45 am.
All participants can receive a copy of their appropriate course map on race day.
Each course will be marked with colored ribbons, signs and flour, so that runners know they are on the correct course. Volunteers will also be on the course at key locations to help direct runners.
Each aid station will be fully stocked with water, sports drink, gels, pretzels, candy, etc. Runners are advised, however, to carry their own water bottle -- especially those doing the half marathon.
The 5K will have two aid stations planned, the 10K has three and the half marathon has five.
