Course Description

The course will run all three of the loops at the New London Technical Trails: Orange, Blue, and Green.
Turns will be marked with streamers and there will be course marshals at tricky points.
The trails are well-used, feature minimal trip hazards, and are still relatively new as they were completed less than 4 years ago.
There will be at least one, but maybe two water stops along the course.
