Description: The race start is located at Long Ranch Park in Carson City. From the park, runners will head north on Longview(paved road) for .57 miles before turning left onto Ash Canyon Road and begin their uphill climbing. Ash Canyon Road stays paved for approximately a half mile before turning to dirt when passing the water tanks. At mile 2.5 runners will hit the first of 2 aid stations before heading down onto single track and crossing over Ash Creek. Once over this bridge, the course begins climbing up several switchbacks in and out of Ash Canyon before traversing across the face of the mountains overlooking Carson City. This section of course will provide runners with spectacular views of Carson City and beyond. After 4.93 miles of steady climbing, runners will reach tree line and connect with Waterfall Road at mile 8. Once at this dirt road, runners will turn left heading downhill for approximately 1 mile before coming to the second and last aid station where they will make a hard right back onto single track and immediately cross over another bridge. This aid station is 5.4 miles from the finish. After leaving Waterfall AS, runners will enjoy 1.68 miles of more single track before entering onto another dirt road. From there runners will continue straight and downhill towards the finish. In approximately a half mile they will turn right through a green gate and onto another dirt road. This road descends quickly with a short but steep uphill climb before turning left onto the final single track trail leading them towards the finish. Once back down to the housing development, runners will enter onto pavement, cross Kings Canyon Road and enter back onto Longview for less than a half mile to the finish.
