High Point

Runners will need to exercise caution in the early going when negotiating the treacherous Devonian Drop. After successfully negotiating the Drop competitors will join the enchanted Orchid Trail to connect with EKG. A short section on Artistic Merit feeds runners into Long Road To Ruin. Road To Ruin ends at the lowest point on the course at 1,350 metres. Now begins the steep climb up the blue Coal Chutes to connect back with EKG and onto Salt Lake. More climbing ensues by switch backing up Matching Jerseys to the Banff Loop and onto Banff Trail connecting for one final steep climb on Coyote to the high point on this leg at 1,540 metres. From here it's mostly fast downhill for the final 2 km on King Of Sweden before joining Olympic Trail for a stadium finish. Lynx is definitely our toughest leg with a 5 claw rating
