The 100 Mile race will consist of two out and back legs. The first leg starts at the Nordic loop and turns around at the Scuppernong campground for a round trip distance of 62.9 miles. After returning to the Nordic loop the 100 mile participants will return to the course, but take a 2nd leg to Rice Lake with a round trip distance of 37.3 miles.
The 100 Km race will follow the first 62.9 miles of the 100 mile course. The course time limit has been set to correspond to the time limit given to the 100 mile participants. This allows the volunteers to break down the aid stations based on a single time for all runners.
The 38 Mile fun run will consist of one out and back leg. Starting at the Nordic loop aid station the 38 mile participants will follow the 100 mile runners as they go out on their loop to Rice Lake. The round trip distance will actually be 37.3 miles.
We wanted to start this fun run so people can gain experience running at night, do a longer training run and keep the trail more active at night for the runners and aid stations.
