3 Mile Course Information

Description

Mile 1

The course starts out with a run through the picnic areas of the lower lagoon. Runners will climb down into a river bed, through a tunnel and up the other side on their way to the first obstacles. Just before mile one the trail begins a steady incline.

Mile 2

Not too long after the mile one marker the course flattens out as runners make their way through a valley before coming to the base of “Heartbreak Hill”! This 50 yard incline will be sure to test your will power. Once at the top take a second to celebrate, it is all downhill for the remainder of the race!

Mile 3

Runners make their way through camping fields with amazing views of the lake and then work their way down the switchbacks to bring themselves to the base of the mountain. A last push back through the picnic area and then it is time to get muddy!
