2020 we are offering a redesigned course! The original course was mostly fire roads throughout the park. Although beautiful, we always intended more of a trail event. With the building of some new hiking trails and a redesign of the course we feel we have a great course waiting for you. We have removed about 90% of the true fire roads.
To improve on racer experience we have removed a ton of the marathon loop fire roads that the 1/2 never ran. What we have done was create a 2 loop course
Aid stations will be placed about every 3-4 miles. As we get closer we will list what will be available at each station.
Relays will run loops approximately 6.5 miles each. This year all relay legs will begin and end at the Start/Finish area and race with the solo marathoners. Runner 1 and 3 will run loop A and runner 2 and 4 will run loop B.
