Pace Requirements
50K pace requirement: 18 minutes per mile. Participants of all ages and skill levels are encouraged to race. In order to maintain the health and safety of hikers, runners, volunteers, guests and staff, a pace requirement for the 50K has been established. Hikers and runners are welcome to continue the race at their own discretion, but the finish line and water stations will be taken down at 5:30 p.m. Participants still on the course after this time will not be eligible for awards and will be offered an escort to race HQ.

Course Information
There will be a 5-mile and 10-mile loop. The 25K race will utilize both loops, and the 50k race will cover both loops twice. (The additional distance will be made up getting to the loops and to/from the start and finish). Portions of the following trails will be used for the races: Tanyard, Meadow View, Lampton, Anderson, West Lot and Shawnee Run. The best estimate for elevation change is about 1,500 feet for every 5 miles of race course. Download the course map HERE.
