Description

Half Marathon and 5k race loops start and finish at Watoga's Beaver Creek Campground and use an old grassy airstrip to give runners a chance to spread out, then follow beautiful shaded park trails at elevations between 2560 and 3200 feet.  The Half Marathon will use the same route as 2019; the 5k race route may be slightly modified.
