The course is a 12.5-mile loop with spurs in Umstead Park. The course will be repeated eight times equaling 100 miles. There are two out and back spurs on the course. The Headquarters Spur is 1.85 miles long and accesses the start/finish aid station, race headquarters and parking. This spur allows you to see fellow runners up to 5.3 miles behind and in front of you, as well as providing some race camaraderie. The other is a .75-mile long spur to adjust the course to the 12.5 mile distance. The .75 mile spur (called the Airport Spur) branches off the Headquarters Spur at the 0.6 mile point of each loop and is run only on the outbound leg of the Headquarters Spur. You will pass the entry point of the Airport Spur as you return on the inbound leg of the Headquarters Spur, mile 11.9; do not take the Airport Spur at this point. We will have signs at this junction to help guide you. The distance has been rolled with a calibrated wheel and is certified accurate by USATF certification. The course is along a converted dirt road, which now serves as a running, biking and bridle trail through the Park. The trail width varies between 10 and15 feet and the footing is excellent. There is no single track trail on the course. All creek crossings are on permanent bridges.
