The course consists of beautiful rolling terrain on both single-track and multi-use trails. The Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park Trail is comprised of three main loops: Swamp Forest, Coon Bottom, and Oak Hammock, along with several connecting trails. The course connects these trails into a 6.8-mile loop.
The cut-off time for this event is 1:00 PM. This will give runners 5 hours to complete the 20-Mile Challenge. If you do not finish your second loop in 3.5 hours, you may not continue and will be awarded the half marathon finish time.
