It's 31.5 miles on 3 loops of rolling hills in a beautiful country setting on asphalt and dirt. It's a great event for those wanting to do their first ultra run. There is no cut off. This is a 31.5-mile fun run with no bells & whistles. The course is not closed to traffic. Derby road is in the middle of nowhere but travelers use it to get somewhere. SO, IN ADDITION TO EXERCISING YOUR BODY PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION! This is a very low key, no frills race. Camping is permitted on the grounds of the community building.
