The 2023 race course will be at Cochran’s Ski Area. A new, but equally fun venue. You’ll run on a mix of open alpine ski slope and wooded single track, with lots of climbing and descending.

Course Details: The ~7 mile course starts and finishes at the base of Cochran’s alpine trails. Runners will complete a long loop (~5mi) plus a short loop (~2mi). Both loops start with a climb up the alpine ski trail, then enter forested single track the rest of the way along some top terrain and for the descent back down to the base area. The first loop goes deeper into the woods, continuing to climb on single track to the high-point of the course then winding down to the base. The second time around, runners take a shortcut just above the top of the alpine slope, linking back into the same trail that brings you down to the base for the finish.
