Half Marathon Description

This is a challenging Half Marathon course. There is 2,389 feet of elevation gain on the Half Marathon course.  The course is made up of mountain trail and fire break roads. The Half Marathon course follows the 50K course until mile 8. There are sections of accent and decent that will be technical but extremely scenic.  As in the past you may experience snow, rain, and mud. Although the distance is that of a traditional half marathon, it is anything but traditional.  There will not be porta-johns, mile markers, spectators, or volunteers at every turn showing you which way to go.  You should treat this race course like an ultra-distance race.  The course will be marked with orange and blue flagging.  Continuous orange flagging will indicate the correct direction.  A combination of orange and blue flagging will indicate an upcoming turn.  The blue flagging will appear on the same side of the trail as the turn will occur.  The course will be marked well but you must pay attention to the flagging.

Half Marathon Aid Stations

There will be 2 aid stations supporting the Trail ½ Marathon.  It is HIGHLY recommended that you carry some type of water i.e. hydration pack, hand held, or fanny pack.
