Course information for the 15k trail race

The 15k course is a great loop, consisting of old forest service roads, rolling hills, and water crossings. New this year is some single track at the very end! The trail is not too technical, so it's a fast route! 

Link to GPX file:

The start/finish area will be at the same location, not as shown on the map. You will also NOT be running the entire track as shown on the course link.
