All courses include challenging (but view-rewarding) hills to go up and down. We recommend walking the up-hill sections and saving your energy for the flat and downs! Except for the start/finish on a grassy field and a couple of small paved sections (less than 10%), the courses run on fire trails (with a section of single track for the Half Marathon).
The 5K run will be an out and back course.
Total elevation gain = approximately 758'
The 10K course will be a loop course.
Total elevation gain = approximately 1,467'
The Half Marathon will be a "figure 8" loop course with one additional loop added on to get the full distance.
Total elevation gain = approximately 2,204'
The half marathon will start at 8:00 am and the course will have a time limit of 4.5 hours. Runners must reach the 4th aid station (mile 9.73) by 11:20am.
As with all of our races, aid stations will be fully stocked with water, sports drink, gels, pretzels, candy, etc. Those needing water more frequently are encouraged to carry a water bottle or hydration pack. We recommend each runner carry at least one bottle of water.
