Description:

Location: Pine Grove Picnic Area

The course consists of three repeats of a roughly 10 mile loop. Terrain is primarily groomed forest trails, interspersed with two 1—3 mile section of rolling gravel roads. If you don’t like the recommended course, just run anywhere you want to — this is not a real event.

The bridge across the Quantico Creek that marks the start and the finish of each loop
The first loop features an initial “prologue” that extends the length of this loop by nearly 2 miles, making it 11.9 miles in length. The prologue starts at the Pine Grove Picnic Area and takes 0.5 miles of pavement down to the Telegraph Road Pavilion. Runners then take a left onto the Birch Bluff Trail and the another left at the Laurel Trail for a total of about 1.5 miles down to the swinging bridge over Quantico Creek. From there, runners follow the 9 mile counter-clockwise loop on various trails and roads through PWFP, eventually ending up back at the bridge. It is then just 0.45 miles up the Laurel Trail to the start/finish at Pine Grove Picnic Area.

For loops 2 and 3, simply return back down the Laurel Trail to the bridge, repeat the 9 mile counter-clockwise loop, and then return to Pine Grove Picnic Area. Each of these loops is 9.9 miles.
