This course caters for all looking to hit the trails for the first time or those looking to challenge themselves over a longer distance. The courses are single tracks that traverse gentle rolling hills with some flat and wide sections. There will also be a bit of the course on the pavement too.
All races start from the same point with an easy 1/4-mile downhill section before a quick climb up a single track trail. There will also be a few technical sections with plenty of rocks and roots to negotiate.

Drop bag pick-up at the Start and drop-off to the aid stations is available.
There are two aid stations located on opposite ends of the lake, which all distances over the 10k will hit at least once. One is at the start/finish area, and the other is at the Hazel Creek area. The 5k and 10k races do not reach the Hazel Creek area, so there is no aid station on the course for those distances.
