Race Details

The loop course is on paved roads with 1,181 feet of elevation gain over three hills. We offer 6 aid stations with 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 has not been finalized, we expect to serve garden pasta, scalloped potatoes, mushroom soup and chicken tortilla soup, bagels and cream cheese, apple crisp with whipped cream, Dawson Taylor coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, water, and micro-brewed beer. Please remember to bring your photo ID if you plan to drink beer.

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.
