Course Description

This course begins at Country Boy Brewing - Georgetown Taphouse and continues on paved roads.  As you leave the parking lot, you will pass under two extended ladder trucks from the Scott County and Georgetown Fire Departments.  From there you will continue onto closed paved roads and meander around a loop where you will catch a glimpse of the Toyota Motor Manufacturing facility.  The halfway mark is next to Country Boy Brewing Taphouse where you will have a water station before you turnaround and head back the way you came.  This is a great place for family and friends to spectate, cheer you on, (or bring you a cold beer from the Taphouse).
