This race could also not happen without the support of the Indiana Road Runners Club-- thank you to the club officers and members for their support.

Runners will be running an out and back course from Saylor Park to Dilltown on the beautiful Ghost Town Trail.  The grade for the trail is about 2% on the way out-- which means a "downhill finish!"  There are mile markers every mile.  There are aid stations every 2-4 miles.  The Marathon and Marathon Relay have 9 aid stations.  The Half Marathon has 5 aid stations.  There are Porta-Johns or facilities at each aid station.
