Course Info

BE AWARE! This is a trail run/walk, meaning the course is going to have lumps, bumps, rocks, roots and ruts. That's what makes it fun! There will be signs on the course warning for any particularly gnarly spots where caution should be taken. Parts of route could be muddy, please keep that in mind when choosing your footwear.

​Approximately 4.5 miles. Starts on pavement, but turns off onto the East Lake Trail and then the Bluebird Trail. Finish back at the Backbone Beach Lodge
