‚ÄúCapitol Forest is a “working forest”, so course revisions are possible to accommodate the “work”. For updates please check here.
Both the 50-mile and 25K start and finish from Falls Creek Trailhead. The race will feature some of the most rugged and serene single-track trails and grinding sections of gravel road, and, depending on toss-of-the-coin for weather in April, spectacular views.
The 50-mile will include Capitol Peak to gaze from, and an out and back on the Porter Trail. The 50-mile course will feature 7 aid stations, the first aid station will be water only with just a little food, so be prepared!
The 25k will have 2 aid stations. Both the 50 mile and 25K, will complete the course on a serene, descent to the finish at Falls Creek Trailhead.
