10k, 15K or 30K Race Course Description:
I consider the first mile to be fast, and the second mile has a climb and plateaus out. The third mile is also very fast, and the fourth mile has a climb that plateaus out at the 1st aid station. The 10K goes pass the start again. 15K & 30K fifth mile is a very fast mile (the flattest mile in the whole race). The sixth mile starts with a fast technical downhill, which is an up & back, but the end of mile six is downhill. The seventh mile has the longest climb and the next aid station. The last portion of the race will consist of a flat section, a fun fast downhill and a scenic uphill climb to the finish. If you running the 30K run you get to do all again. Check out the web page for course map, turn sheet, and pictures.
