Recent Garmin info...

Hi guys!  I recently went out and ran/walked/hiked the loop intended for the race next April and I realized afterward that the course is 3 miles short.  I am intending to add in 3 more miles on the mountain bike trail making the west end of the course and out and back and the east section and out and back.  This seems to work well for the Virgina Happy Trail Runners and the BRR;  So why not here?  This is general overview of the course.

Please note the split times in the "view detail" section.  Each split will show the estimated locations of each aid station.    Things to look for while out on the course: an old tractor with a tree growing thru it, foundations of old farm houses that were there turn of the century, cemetery where slaves and free are buried side by side, old road ways that disappear into the lake, the front end of VW beetle out the middle of nowhere.  While out on the course keep an eye out for numerous deer, and wild turkey which are in large numbers in the area. This course should be fun and interesting to run.
