The race courses (including 5-person relay) are out-and-back style courses. The 30K and 50K courses largely follow the blue-blazed Glacier Ridge/North Country Trail in Moraine State Park and the Jennings Environmental Education Center near Slippery Rock, PA. The Glacier Ridge Trail is a local designation for that part of the more extensive North Country Trail system that passes through Moraine State Park.

The race courses will be marked with flagging, directional arrows and pin flags. The first mile or so of the courses will be run on a wide paved/cinder bike trail to allow the pack to stretch out before entering the single-track. The remainder of the 30K and the vast majority of the 50K follow beautiful single-track through hardwood forests. The 50M course between about mile 21 and mile 40 follows a couple miles of gravel roads, with the rest being very runnable double-track/fire roads, although this section is not free of hills…for your enjoyment of course!
