The 5K is a flat and fast out-n-back course consisting of a mix of single track, double track, and about 150 yds of road. The 10K is also a mix of single track, double track, and about 150 yds of road. The 10K course will have some technical sections as well as 2-3 creek bed crossings. These will most likely be dry but will have loose rocks. The course will start with a small loop, approx 1 mile, and then become an out-n-back.
