The Doug Allen Memorial 6 Hour Shuffle course will be a loop trail on the grassy/dirt trails of the Lake Elmo Park Reserve Ski trails. The start/finish area will be near the Nordic Center. The course offers rolling hills through woods and prairie. You will run/walk the loop until you are no longer able to complete a loop in the time remaining. You will then do a short course in which the distance will be marked each time you return to the start/finish area until the air horn blows at the 6 hour mark. The Night Owl 5K/10K will feature the Twin Cities only lit 100% trail course. The grass and dirt Lake Elmo Park Reserve ski trails are wide and very runnable.
The races will be run on wide grass trails. The fully lit trails include rolling hills with excellent views of the lakes and a brilliant display of fall color. Each loop of the course is 3.35 miles so 5K is one loop and the 10K is two loops

All three races are run on grassy ski trails over rolling hills. The lights will be on for the 5K and 10K Night Owl races, but runners are encouraged to bring supplemental lighting with either a headlamp or hand held flashlight.
