Course Map

This course is completely on Walker's Bluff private property and does not go on county roads.  The race starts and finishes in the same location.  Runners start off by running on the drive past Legends and through the parking lot on the bottom left of the picture (Southwest) and then you run along the tree line perimeter taking you to mile 1 which goes back on the pavement right before the start/finish line area.  Runners then run across the dam adjacent to the Big Muddy River and then over to the vineyard area.  Once you reach the vineyards you are close to mile 2 of the race and runners will be more spread out and you will weave in and out of the beautiful vineyards!  Then the last 1/2 mile you take the private drive west and run past the entrance of Legends and you finish all on the private drive back to where the race started.   This is a beautiful course and runners will take in great scenery along the way.  Come run with us!
