Who needs 'flat and fast'? There are plenty of those out there. This race is something different, a yardstick to measure your hill skills by! Both 5K and 15K courses begin at Nordic Mountain Ski Resort in picturesque Mt. Morris and wind through woods and around lakes, until reaching the final challenge - the peak of Mt. Morris itself! If reaching the peak doesn't take your breath away, the amazing view at the top most certainly will.
The story goes that the town of Mt. Morris was named in the late 1800's after two men agreed to decide the town's name with a footrace to the top of the hill. The winner was a man named 'Morris'. In honor of the fastest male and female of the 15K race, the town or Mt. Morris will be renamed after them . . . for the day!
