The 5K and 10 mile courses will begin at the same time, with each race starting their course in opposite directions. PAY ATTENTION TO THE SIGN DIRECTIONS TO STAY ON YOUR COURSE! Volunteers will be placed at intersections to help guide you in the right direction.

 

 

5K Course:

Runners will head towards the Marble Mine Trail, to Marble

Mine then down towards the lake trail and on to the Primitive

markers.

10 Mile Course:

Runners will head towards the lower lake via the paved service

road (sorry, but it's not much!) and in to the campsites, through

the Blueberry Trail and out towards Jenkins Gap Parking Lot

where you will turn left towards the upper lake. Runners will

make their way to the Marble Mine before the climb to Becky's

Bluff. At the top of Becky's Bluff runners will take a left back

towards the Marble Mine Trail and all the way down off the

ridge. Once down the ridge runners will take a right and head

towards the upper lake once again until the Pioneer Campsite

Trail taking a left, and once off the pretty single track through

the woods a right towards Jenkins Gap Parking Lot to retrace

your way back through the campsites and the lower lake.

10Mile runners will be following blue course markers.

Aide Stations:

Each race will see multiple aide stations with excited volunteers. 5K race will pass through two, and the 10 milers will pass five aide stations. Water and Gatorade will be available at all and bananas, crackers, and other trail fare the top of the ridge and one near the upper lake.

Packet Pick Up

Packet pick up will be available from 5:00pm-7:00pm at Shelter #3 on Friday, September 10th. Race day packet pick up will start at 7:30am through 8:30am at Shelter #3. Shelter #3 is located across the bridge from the Park Office. You can also get there by taking the first left as you enter the park. Stay to the left, and park where you can see the bridge at the lake.

Rules of the Race

Do NOT litter! There will be many aide stations with strategically placed trash cans. THIS IS NOT A ROAD RACE! Use the cans or carry your trash with you. If we catch you littering in the park we will take your picture and post it on social media to shame you!

Thank the volunteers!

Be courteous and helpful to your fellow racers. Never leave an injured runner until help arrives.
