Get ready for a beautiful challenge. Runners tackle a 16.5 mile loop that’s a gauntlet of great Maine singletrack, journeying through Bradbury Mountain State Park, over Tryon Mountain, around Snowman's loop, and back into Bradbury Mountain State Park. The course has tough hills, rocks, roots, and very little flat including a 1/2 mile of paved road and 1/4 mile of dirt road. With the fall foliage at it’s peak, there are sure to be many fantastic vistas along the route.
Runners taking on the Pounder 50k will run two laps earning their finisher's trophy. Punisher runners do three laps of the 16.5 mile course.
