The course is a 12.5 mile trail loop, a mix of double track and single track trail, in Willowdale State Forest. The course is very runnable but has a lot of rocks and some sections contain many roots. The terrain is rolling. There may be recently fallen leaves obscuring the footing.
The course will be well marked by orange ribbons on clothespins. Most turns will have arrow markers.
The course will be run in reverse direction this year, with some new single-track sections and a new location for Freddie's aid station.HERE is a turn-sheet-style description of the 2015 course. The numbers in the description are intersection numbers - white reflective numbers on three foot high brown plastic markers - a couple are missing.
