The course is a hilly 10-kilometer loop with a cumulative ascent of approximately 940 feet.  It will consist of approximately 1 mile of blacktop with the remainder being primarily singletrack trails and a pinch of grass & doubletrack.


There will be one aid station near the midpoint of the race.  It will have refreshments only; Orange Gatorade & Water.


In keeping with the race organizers' principles and reducing the unnecessary junk often generated by these events, as well as wanting to keep things simple just as trail racing should be, this will be a 'recycling event'.  As part of your participation we ask that you bring one prize which can be running related or not.

Prizes can be just about anything you're willing to offer up, but please nothing inappropriate or anything that is truly trash and would be a disappointment for whomever goes home with it.  The possibilities are endless, but a few good ideas are a unique race medal, race shirt, baked goods, beer or wine (provider and recipient must be 21), leg lamp, gift card, etc., etc.....
