Course description: (Thanks to Kilian Jornet for the description)
Well, it was kinda neat. The course starts off flat along the Mad river, then my feet got wet, then there were these cute little hills that went up and down. There was a short dirt road section which was a nice break but not long enough to get boring. We ran along a field and up a pitch of a hill, then an almost flat uphill before reaching the 5K aid station. Then we ran a long downhill on a dirt road and back onto another trail with little rolling hills. Into a forest with some short steep climbs and another river crossing, to the start/finish.
From Airport Road and highway 89, take Airport Road north 15 minutes to the first road north of Avening. Travel west on Sideroad 6/7 to the private drive at the first bend.
