The course will begin on Hidden Valley Drive about .25 miles away from the trail head. This will enable the runners to spread out before they reach the actual trail. This will also keep the on runners on trails without distributing the area near or around the trails. After the runners enter the trail they will travel .4 miles then as the trail splits they will be directed to the right to the NEW Hidden Valley trail. Runners will then travel 2.2 miles until they reach Hunter Loop trail. When Hunters Loop splits they will be directed towards the left. After traveling .3 miles they will begin running on Laughing Horse Loop for .3 miles. When Laughing Horse Loop splits they will directed toward the left again traveling .7 miles. Runners will begin to head back towards the start of race using the.5 mile section of Laughing Horse Loop. By using a loop course with only few sections traveled twice during the race we will limit the possibility of runners running both ways on the trail. Runners will then travel .3 miles on Laughing Horse Loop trail then completing .4 miles and .6 miles sections of Hunter Loop trail until they reach Wild Loop trail. Traveling .8 miles on lower section of Wild Loop then completing the last .4 miles to finish located in parking lot for Devil’s Backbone Trail Head.
