It is getting a little harder.
Not only have we upped the distance to 7 and 14 miles, we have raised the difficulty level. The Memorial Day Run (I know, but Memorial Day Weekend Run was just a bit much) will contain the first real climb, or climbs, in the Trail Series. Runners will climb from Maggie's Glen, on the white trail, up Shackleford Ridge, then across the ridge and up to Shackleford Point and back down. Once in the 7 mile and twice in the 14 mile. The views off Shackleford Ridge are great, but the terrain is very technical in places so you will need to pay attention to your footing. If you have run the first two races and kept up your training in between, you are ready.
