The course for this race is beautiful with a great variety of terrain and views. As you might expect from a trail race there are many roots, rocks, rolling hills, and the potential for mud. Despite this the race has a forgiving surface and is considered to be less intense and technical than some other trail ultra-marathons in our region.

For this reason we think that this course is ideal for an experienced ultra-marathoner who wishes to go for a fast time or for a runner who seeks to run their first ultramarathon in a setting that will allow them to enjoy their experience. Because of the generous time allowances it is also a good event for someone seeking to fast-hike the distance. Register:
