The pavement scamper is approximately a one mile asphalt loop that includes a few gentle rollers. Run 24, 12, or 6 hours. The number of loops is your result!

The dirt scamper is approximately a two mile loop that contains some short grades, rocks, and smiling roots. Enjoy this dirt scamper for 24,12, or 6 hours.

    Does anyone know the actual mileage for the trail run? I am looking forward to running this event next year. I found out about it about a week before the event and had prior commitments. I was looking at the overall results from the different trail events and the mileage for some of the finishers is throwing me off.

    Daniel – I was comparing some miles/laps and they weren’t making sense to me either at times, so I decided to stick with laps since I assumed those numbers would be accurate.

    If someone from the race doesn’t respond, I will ping the RD and see if he can clarify the distance.

    Trail path is approximately 2 miles. However, with the rain/thunderstorms this year, they had to move the trail after the rain to an alternate route to save the trail/park. That is probably why the numbers were off.

    Thanks for the insight Tim! I really appreciate it.
