Description:

The run is open to GUTS members only, join if you must! Due to park permit limitations this is classified as a run and it is not officially organized. For all intents and purposes we are disorganized. There will be plenty of lovely pumpkins available to runners for the purpose of giving the pumpkin a ride to the top of the mountain. Any runner who brings back their pumpkin, unharmed, will be given a special prize. You gotta run at least 1 loop before carrying a pumpkin. The run will be held on a loop course. Each loop is approximately 10k miles in length. 5 loops would be 50k, if you are so inclined.

The first loop will be run clockwise, with subsequent loops alternating direction. The first loop will head west and circle the bottom of the mountain, turn after the bench and go to “the rock” on Pigeon Hill. Then climb to the VERY top of the mountain, descend the trail and return via the road, turning right at the botttom of the road before reaching the visitor’s center. Then take the trail back to the start/finish. Each loop has over 1000 feet of climb. The loop is a combination of smooth dirt, service road, rocky steep single track, and a little asphalt.
