Race Details

The loop course is on paved roads with 1,181 feet of elevation gain over three hills. We offer 6 aid stations, including 8 portable toilets available along the course. Finishers receive a long sleeve, embroidered, moisture-wicking T-shirt and a finisher medal. Women’s shirts are v-neck and men’s shirts are crew neck.

Post-Race Party

We provide a nice post-race party with hot food, cold drinks, and a live band. While the menu is yet to be determined, we expect to offer similar fare as last year: baked, baby, baker potatoes, garden pasta, soup, apply crisp, Dawson Taylor Coffee, hot chocolate, chocolate milk, bottled water, limeade, and Highland’s Hollow micro-brewed beers.

Awards and Prizes

Awards are presented at the post-race party for Overall winners and Age Group winners (M/F—1st, 2nd, 3rd). We also have a great prize drawing with tickets drawn from all participants who finish the race.


Volunteers are welcome and appreciated. They receive a short sleeve, embroidered T-shirt and are welcome to attend the post-race party after completing their tasks.
