The short race will be about 4 miles with gentle hills and no technical terrain except, perhaps, the 100 ft. section of trail going up the dam on the Yellow Trail. The Middle distance race will be about 7 miles with a long and climb to the top of Double Oak Mountain before returning to the Finish. The Long option will be about 14 miles and will be two loops of the 7 mile loop.
Long Course: There will be two aid stations on the 14 mile course. The is a Water Only aid station at the North Trail Head, 2 miles from the finish. There is also a full aid station at the start finish and end of the first 7 mile loop.
