From the transition, athletes proceed right out of Winberry park, and head West before turning right onto Big Fall Creek Road. Athletes continue on Big Fall Creek Road until they reach the turn-around point approximately 7.5 miles into the course. Upon reaching Winberry Creek Road athletes turn left and complete the largest climb on the course. At the top of the hill, near the Winberry Park entrance, there will be an aid station. Athletes continue past the entrance to Winberry Park along picturesque Winberry Creek Road until the second turn-around point approximately 20 miles into the course. After completing the two out-and-backs athletes return to the transition zone in Winberry Park.
