Ski trails with a mix of double and single track. Bring on the HILLS!!! The course begins with a 300m pavement section followed by a single track downhill to the edge of the river. This is immediately followed by a three step climb from the bottom to the top of the bank. There, a crowd will be waiting to cheer you on into the next section of technical single track. This section has plenty of twists and short climbs and ends with a blazing descent through the trees. From there you break out onto a short section of pavement and are greeted by the first Aid Station. After that, you face a 1.5km section of rolling single track along the river’s edge. This is follow by a grueling uphill that will take you to the top of the bank and into the Nordic ski trails. The ski trails are 1.5km and are a mix of double and single track with a few punchy up-hills. This section concludes when you reach the top of the Chairlift and make your way into the Down-hill ski section. This area will have a number of slalom descents and off-camber traverses mixed in with some switch back climbs. The last section of single track is as wild as it gets. Be sure to follow the markers here my friends because you will see people running in every direction! As you break out of the trees from the mind-bending single track the course concludes with a run-way finish. For the Enduro runners, you will break to the right, grab a drink and head out for lap two So have fun, cheer on your fellow trail runners and always be sure to thank a Volunteer!
