The course is an out and back for all distances and features a little pavement, a little gravel and a lot of dirt mixed with rocky terrain. The course starts out uphill then sends you downhill for 5 miles. After turning around, you run uphill for 5 miles and then finish downhill (half marathon course). It is a worthy run that will humble any runner who intends to set a PR. However, there is little that can compare to the views of Mt Jefferson and other peaks as you run out into the canyon.
All proceeds will go to the MADras Runners Jack Watts Memorial Scholarship, which encourages and supports running in youth as they pursue higher education. All finishers will receive a gift. Afterwards, stick around for local brews and food INSIDE and out of the cold.
