Walkers are welcome! There will be a 2-hour cutoff for both distances, making the 5k especially walker-friendly!
10k runners will be treated to a rolling loop course through idyllic Dorset Hollow. You will gain and lose approximately 550' of elevation. Fast downhill/flat finish!
Course map and elevation profile for the 10k can be viewed here. 10k runners will be bused from the finish at the Long Trail School to the start ~0.8 miles down Kirby Hollow Road, unless they choose to walk. (It's pretty flat and it's a great warm-up!) Buses leave at 7:30, SHARP!! Race entry includes shuttle.
The 5k is a fast point-to-point along the back half of the 10k loop featuring over 300' of net downhill. Don't forget to enjoy the scenery as you fly by!
