The loop course starts with five miles out on the Willis River Trail before heading back on sections of the Cumberland Multi-use, Lost Barr Loop, Lakeside and other trails. The run is 95% trail and about 5% road. There are no significant elevation changes, but the trail crosses several creeks, has numerous short hills and includes some challenging sections with roots and mud. This map provides a general overview of the loop course but it will be wise to follow the course markings on race day. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY. BE ALERT FOR ROOTS, STONES, MUD, TREE LIMBS, ETC. AND WATCH FOR TRAFFIC AT THE FEW ROAD CROSSINGS. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FELLOW RUNNERS AND COURSE MARSHALS.
