All 26.2 miles of the marathon will be run within the borders of William B. Umstead State Park, a five thousand-acre tract of dense woods, lakes, streams, hills, and trails that rests between the cities of Raleigh, Cary, and Durham. The course consists of some technical single-track, but is mostly run on the park’s bridle trails, which are the width of a single lane road and covered with fine gravel. The route is scenic and hilly. Note: This is a challenging race with many hills and some single-track sections consisting of narrow trails with rocks and roots. There is also a six-hour cut off. Finishers will receive distinctive pint glasses with the race logo. Sorry, no race medals. Some people love this sort of thing, but it is not for everyone. We love it and hope you will too.
