The Course

The 3 mile trail race will take place on the 34 acre Rentschler Arboretum with beautiful views of the Blue Mountain. The course loops together all the trails at the Arboretum which includes wooded single track, a meadow, and farm fields. This is a hilly 3 mile course, with about 540 feet of elevation gain, but the trails are all runnable! Hikers are welcome! There's minimal overlap of the course and the trails are wide enough for passing. If you're hiking you'll probably want a headlamp.
