Timing:

Your race number will have a timing chip on the back.  Please do not fold, remove the chip.  Race numbers should be attached so numerals are right side up. Your numbers should be visible during the entire event and placement on your shirt is best as this helps with tagging any photos to your result link.

Course info:

2020 offered a redesigned course. The original course was mostly fire roads throughout the park. Although beautiful, we always intended more of a trail event. With the building of some new hiking trails and a redesign of the course we feel we have a great course waiting for you. We have also tweaked a few miles from 2020 to even improve on the re-design.

The new course is a 2 loop course for the Marathon yet 1 loop for each of the 10k and 1/2 marathon adding more trail miles.  This will give you more picturesque views and a better trail race experience!  These new trails are very runnable with good footing most of the way.  This also allows us to offer better service at aid stations!

On-course
aid:
Aid stations will be approximately 3, 6, 9, 13, 16,19 and 22 miles.
