The course

 

The start/finish line will be directly behind Medford High School. The course route is almost entirely in the woods. Because it’s in the Fells, it will include some hills, rocks and roots through fire roads and singletrack. It will be challenging enough for dedicated trail runners, yet those new to trail running should definitely give it a try!
