Course Info & Maps

Please NOTE your race distance, 2.5 MILE or 5 MILE

Soaring views and awesome trail fun! The 2.5 mile course is an easier intro to trail running. Perfect for kiddos, beginners, “newbies” or athletes that just wanna have a fun short distance race on the dirt trails.

The 5 mile course features more technical trails, more turns and a greater elevation gain. This is a fun & challenging course depending on your target race pace or athletic ability. This distance is also a great way to practice & prepare for longer trail runs or trail races.

**Athletes are responsible for knowing the course routes, layouts and directions. We do our best to adequately mark courses, provide direction and station volunteers throughout the course.

We expect local vendors & sponsors to be on site and are planning to have this be a low key grassroots style race. We will NOT be serving food, but rather a “grab n go” light snack/breakfast post race option. Please check out our sponsors & vendors section below for a complete list as this is updated on a regular basis as we add more.


  • The courses are subject to route adjustments pending weather. As of September 20th, 2020, they are accurate.

  • Both run courses will pass the same aid station and there will be cups of water & electrolyte drink available. These cups are 100% biodegradable to help keep our race as “green” as possible.
