This is NOT a typical 5K course that you may encounter at most urban races in our area. Almost the entire course (99%) is on gravel roads and single trails. It offers challenging 200+ feet of elevation gain, lots of roots, rocks, leaves, fallen trees, and stream crossings etc. There is also a lot of wild life: from deer and foxes, encounter with which may not be so probable during the Festival hours, to snakes and ticks, which won't necessarily hide, depending on the weather and temperature.
Course will be marked with marking paint and, where necessary with additional signs and streamers.
Hilly, ~2500-7500 feet in 50 miles
Some rocks, root, and/or ruts
