The course starts in a heavily wooded picnic area with dynamic views of the Rio Grande to the west. One hundred yards into the trail the runner will encounter a soft sand terrain for about a quarter mile. Once the runner clears the beach glimpses of the river and the cooling effect of the tree canopy will settle you into your rhythm. The path is windey in areas however naturally well marker and cleared. The second half of the course is on the dike path perfect for picking up the pace while catching visuals of your opponents down in the river trail. The finish is where the adventure all began.
