12k and Half Marathon Route and Elevation Profiles
For our 14th annual race we have decided to change it up a bit. Both races will happen on the trails north of the Horseshoe parking lot. (For those of you that hike or bike in this area we are talking about Bovine, Sharks Belly, South Bound, etc.) The Half Marathon will not be going up and over Mount Manning as the 20k has done in the past.
