Please study the map supplied on the DNR website (see link below or on the Resources page) to get a better feel for how these loops connect. While we will run on the mountain bike trails, there are also horse trails that intersect with the bike trails. Whenever the bike trail intersects with a horse trail, the rule of thumb is to continue straight (do not go left or right). The only turns you will make onto a new trail is when you come to a trail post marker. So remember, stay on the trail you’re running on, and only change to a new trail when a post marker is directly in front of you.
(NOTE - as we get closer to race day we will post actual examples of any trail marking tape and/or trail signs that we will use on the course - no surprises. Our goal is to ensure nobody gets lost)
16 Mile - we will run all 4 loops in the clockwise direction. The race will start and finish at the Trailhead, which is the same start and finsh for A Loop. The Loops connect as follows:
Participant Commitment: no need for a lecture here - heed the trail runner's core values and please do whatever you can to leave the trail cleaner than when you found it. Thanks!
7 Mile - we will run 2 loops in the clockwise direction. The race will start and finish at the Trailhead, which is the same start and finsh for A Loop. The Loops connect as follows:
Below are sample pics of the trail post markers, which are located at the various Loop intersections. We will have additional trail markings on race day to ensure the route is clear.
