25k / 1020m ascent & descent
AS The 25k starts out leaving Rose Valley school grounds and quickly enters into the park on a steady single track climb. Runners will be treated to the first fun switchback descent in the race which drops them down into more amazing single track and outstanding views.
Aid Station #1 will be reached at the 10.5k point of the race and runners will want to fuel up because the next aid is 9.5k away and there is a monster climb in-between the two aid stations. The descent is twisty and fun and will links into Aid Station #2 at 20k. From here, the last 5km is NO walk in the park and runners have a lot of work ahead of them as they hit a tight single track trail that will once again lead them up to high vistas before traversing back to the finish line at Rose Valley Elementary School to complete one big loop.
10k / 430m
NEW for 2016, we added a 10k race option. Runners follow the same course as the 50k & 25k runners and will get to experience the famous figure 8 section of dazzling single track and additional climb up to "lone tree" for more outstanding views.
Please note: there is NO aid station for the 10k runners and you must be comfortable being self supported.
