30k course

Course map

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

Course map

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 & 1/4 mile kids courses


The noncompetitive 2mi run/walk is almost entirely on paved paths, 'cept for the last little bit across the gravel parking lot to the finish.
The ¼ mile kids run begins on the bike path and continues across the gravel parking lot to the finish.
