THE COURSE: This is a CERTIFIED 5k (3.1 mile) course that is a combination of wide grassy trails, narrow and wide wooded single track, asphalt (.5 miles), 2 fields, 3 wooden bridge crossings and an occasional dirt road. It is very dynamic and fun course. The path is firm, flat ground in most sections with roots covering much of the wooded single track. Most of the course is flat with soft rolling hills. There are two distinct uphill climbs (dist road and wide wooded trail) and one distinct downhill (pavement). It is identical to last year’s course.
The course is so dynamic one participant joked that the race director must have entered a competition to see how many ecosystems he could fit into one 5k course…and won. This fun event, also known as “The Monster” and part of Race of Awesome Series, is designed to raise funds for different charities both locally and internationally.

AID STATIONS AND SUPPORT: There are two aid stations. One is located in tent city next to the starting/finishing line. The second one is located in the middle of the course – approximately 1.6 miles in. Additionally, the course runs around ‘tent city’- a large beautiful field where there is plenty of room for everyone to camp out right next to the course. This is right next to the start/finish line. So if you have friends or want to being an additional aid station for yourself it is very convenient. We just ask that you do not keep your cars down on the field, but you are welcome to drive down and drop off all of your gear the day before or the morning of the event.

Each aid station has:

Fruit (oranges, bananas, watermelon, pineapple, melon, strawberries),
Sport Drink (Gatorade)
Ice Water
Vaseline
Chicken Broth (tent city only)
Basic First Aid Kit
Port-A-John

FOOD:
Pizza will be available along the course for the runners for dinner and additional gels/bars will be available for purchase on site.

RESTROOMS:
There are several restrooms near tent city. Additionally there will be two port-a-Johns on the course. One will be at the second aid station approximately half way through the course and the other will be along the course at base camp.

SHOWERS: You will have access to a shower house that is on site. The building is approximately 20 yards from tent city.

CAMPING is FREE: If you are interested in camping the field (‘tent city’) will officially be open on Friday, May 31 at 4:00pm for you to set up and even scout out the course. For those of you that were here the course will be the same as last year’s. We liked that one enough to do it thrice.
