25k (16 miles) all trail. No loops. One long trail on varying terrain, mostly forest shaded. Everything from rock scrambling uphills to single track downhills, to mountain bike havens and as few fireroads as possible in order to get you back on lovable dirt enlightenment. Elevation gain is estimated at 2800-3000 ft. The trails are very technical and challenging. A great course to hike, run, or both. Its really an adventure and a beautiful park. You won't know you are 8 miles outside Baltimore. 3-4 Aid Stations with plenty of water and some food. Course markings and detailed maps are planned to be included.
There has been talk of some people wanting a 50k option. We are currently looking into a sanctioned version of this. The park is being talked to, and we are awaiting their word. If you are interested in a 50k option (two loops, one being unsupported), wait to register.
Unlimited Kegs (until we run out anyway), pulled pork, burgers, hotdogs, Vegan offering. Horseshoes, Cornhole (if you dont know - now u know), Music, and Games. Race winners get bragging rights. We are renting three of the Patapsco Avalon Shelters, which have bathrooms nearby, a cold river for swimming on a scorching day, a pit for bbq, and plenty of space to enjoy ourselves.
Please do not park at Startline. All runners and attendees must shuttle in from the exterior parking lot, or we might not have our race next year!
