Course

Here is a course map that details the 6- and 11-mile routes.
Both races will take place on the western trails of the Eno River State Park.
**COURSE RE-ROUTE FOR 2018**
The bridge at Holden Mill sustained hurricane damage and is closed. Runners will connect to the Holden Mill Trail loop via the new Fieldstone Trail (0.6M). This will make both the 6M and 11M courses longer than usual.
The 6- and 11-mile course routes will start and finish near the Piper Cox House and will follow the Buckquarter Creek Trail, Ridge Trail, Shakori Trail, Fieldstone Trail (new!) and Holden Mill loop. After Holden Mill loop, runners will then run back along the Fieldstone trail to Ridge Trail, back to Buckquarter Creek Trail.  The 11-mile course continues across the Eno River to the Cox Mountain Trail.
The trails at Eno River State Park are some of the most beautiful and challenging in the Triangle area. Both the 6- and 11-mile courses feature technical single track trail with numerous natural obstacles including rocks, roots, trees, uneven ground, and fallen debris. There is a short section of bouldering over rocks where the trail skirts the river. Both distances feature challenging ascents and descents that require careful concentration. The 11-mile distance also includes an unassisted river crossing at Fews Ford.
