Course Descriptions (map available):
5K: Starts in open field at summit, follows Big A trail around the top for a gentle warm up. Follow down the road to Hairpin Turn trail to the first water stop. Continues to Ring trail and follows it all the way around counter-clockwise, to second water stop before a challenging climb back to the top. Course will overlap slightly before the connection to Witch hazel trail. This year the course follows a portion of the Big A once again and finishes close to the same start area.
1-Mile: Starts at the Big A Welcome sign and follows the new universal access trail around the outer perimeter and then inner loop to finish at the very top. Look for 1/10th mile markers to help guide your way.
