Course

50k: The 50k course will be mostly gravel with a few miles of pavement. This course follows the same route as the full marathon with an additional leg along the scenic Logan River valley.

Marathon: The course will be mostly gravel with a few miles of pavement. While the course has some gentle rolling hills it also has some more challenging hills along with some flat valleys. The scenic course runs through the Elkhorn and Logan River Valley where the towns of Hooper, Scribner and Uehling can be seen in the distance. The marathon course will cross the Burlington railroad tracks on two occasions. In the slim chance that a runner would be stopped by a train, there will be a timer there to adjust your time at the end of the race.

Half-Marathon and 5k: Both these courses will be run on all gravel with both flat and rolling hills. The half-marathon will run through the Logan Valley and will run almost to the town of Uehling.
