Directions to the Starting Line
Take Exit 78 and drive north on Highway 7 for almost 3 miles.
Turn left on Skyline Dr and continue straight until the
spillway parking area.
Race day registration and packet pick-up at located at east edge of the boat ramp parking lot.
This is also the pick-up point for the trucks providing transportation to the starting line.
The race starts atop Iron Mountain on Skyline Dr. The first two miles consist of flat or downhill sections as the road cuts
through a heavy wooded section of Iron Mountain. There is a significant downhill section near the 2 mile marker which takes runners
to the start of the dam. Skyline Dr runs along the top of the Lake DeGray Dam offering runners a spectacular view of the lake and countryside.
After crossing the dam, the course hits a small uphill section before another
huge downhill takes runners to the spillway area. At the bottom of this hill,
the racers have to make a near 180 degree turn, after which the 3 mile marker
is soon passed. The last tenth of a mile is flat as it curves around the spillway
parking area to the finish line.
