This is a trail run... it has moderate difficulty on hills, but very easy running on a very wide trail. The trail is through trees and at this time of the year leaves are in full color. This is a private trail and only open to public running during this race.
Head west on Dodge (highway 6) to Elkhorn 204th street. Go South on 204th and take the first right on to Rawhide Road. As you crest the hill you will see a church on your right. Turn right on 208th. Park in the church parking lot.
