30k Course: The 30k trail course uses the entire 8k course but adds a trip up to Fitton Green Natural Area for some awesome views, incorporating the Mulkey Ridge connector trail each way.  The course will be challenging due to the hills, but the views and nice trails will make your work quite worth the effort. 

8k Course: The scenic 8k trail run consists of challenging hills and flat stretches in Bald Hill Park, with about 1.4 miles of paved path and 3.6 miles of dirt trails. There may be a surprise musical interlude at the top of the hill. Keep your ears open.  There will be two aid stations.  

2 mile course: The noncompetitive 2mi run/walk will be entirely on paved paths. The ¼ mi. kids run is paved.

Awards: The overall male and female winners and the top three in each age group will receive awards.

Aid Stations/Refreshments: There will be four aid stations on the 30k.  All will be serving water and sports drinks.  The Fitton Green aid station (passed twice) will also have a buffet of ultra race snacks.  Two aid stations will be located on the 8k course serving water and sports drinks. The finish will be stocked with fresh fruit, and other great refreshments.
