START/FINISH LOCATION: The start/finish will be at the Bath House / Beach area (northeast side of the lake near all the parking areas). See park map for more details.

COURSE DETAIL:

You will run 2.11 mile loops around the picturesque lake within a majestic pine-hardwood forest filled with trees 75-100 years old. A fun trail running surface that offers variety for the body and beautiful views for the mind.

The loop is sweet pine needle covered trail along with a short grass and pavement section to complete the loop.

Course is subject to change and if so, maps/information will be updated and runners notified immediately.

AID STATION: We have always rocked the paper cup-free status at our aid stations! Please bring your own water bottle or hydration system.

See Cup-Free Racing Support for a list of hydrous options to support this transition.

We will have one fully supported aid station (Yaupon Holly) located at the start/finish/start-another-loop area that will contain water, electrolyte drink, and a buffet table of other sugary/salty trail running goodies.

CUT-OFF TIMES: 

This unique race format and course provides a unique end to the race.

You must start your last loop before your time cut-off.

Examples (Signed up for 2 hour race):

  • Finished loop with 1:59:00 on the race clock. You can enjoy one more loop and add on a couple more miles to your total adventure but you must be out of the aid station and heading out on your final loop before the clock reaches 2 hours.
  • Finished loop with 2:01:00 on the race clock. That last loop counts towards your total miles but you can’t go out for another loop.
