Course Description & Notes

Course Description

Check back soon for a mile-by-mile description of the course to keep you on track!

Time limit
All runners will have 4hours to finish the race. That is an 18.5 minute mile - plenty of time for walkers and for everyone to conquer this course! If at anytime we deem it unsafe and need to pull a runner off the course we would hope for understanding and immediate cooperation. Failure to comply will result in being banned from future events.

Location Note
To be clear, this race doesn't take place inside the National Park. It's difficult to get permission to conduct private business activities on national land (and rightly so.) Having said that, this is about as close to the park as it gets.
