The 5K is entirely on paved trails. The 10K is about 50% paved trails and 50% fire trails. The half marathon is approximately 25% paved trails and 75% fire trails.
The 5K and 10K will essentially be out and back courses, while the half marathon is a loop.
All courses include rolling hills that are mostly runnable -- except for the climb up Live Oak for the half marathon and 10K that is best power-hiked!
Aid Station #2
The half marathon will start at 8:30 am and the course will have a time limit of 4.5 hours. Runners must reach the Brandon aid station for the second time (mile 10.70) by 11:45 am.
If you come into the aid station after these times, we will ask you to please accept a ride back to the finish area.
All courses will be marked with flour and course signs. The half marathon course will be marked with red ribbons, the 10K with blue ribbons, and the 5K with yellow ribbons.
Water stations will be fully stocked with water, sports drink, gels, pretzels, candy, etc.
Aid Stations on course:
1/2 Marathon: 4
