Course Information:
The event starts at the Conewago Day Use Area off of Alpine Rd.  Please keep in mind this is a trail run.  In some places the trail is single track and only wide enough for one person.  The run will take place on both dirt and gravel.  We do not have exclusive access to the trails so please beware of non-race participants on the course.  Hikers and Bikers may be on the trails.  Please share the trail.  The trails will have natural obstacles like rocks, roots and mud.  Please be careful and remember you are running at your own risk.
