Course Details



Starting at Iron Mountain Marina, there is a 0.6 mile section of jeep trail which turns into single track. The trail is full of manageable rocks and roots with long flowing up and down sections. There is one grueling climb at Mile 10. Also note, there is a highway crossing at the top of the climb which will be managed by course marshals.  RUNNERS PLEASE USE CAUTION WHEN CROSSING PAVED ROADS. The course will be marked with signs and volunteers will be at key intersection points as well. Ultimately, it’s the runner's responsibility to know the course. The course is run counter clockwise.
