Course Information:

Parking and the starting line are at the Trailside Shelter. Bathrooms are available. The course is run primarily on the Lakeshore Loop and is made of packed dirt and finely crushed gravel. It has slight to moderate elevation changes and will include a water aid station approximately half way through the course.

Mile markers will be provided at each mile. Granola bars and bananas will be provided for participants after the race. Awards will begin at 9:30am. Our organization has rented out the shelter area for the whole day, so feel free to stay afterwards and enjoy the park!
