Course Information: Running Map (click for course map)

This is a smooth crushed gravel 8’ wide trail with a 600’ net elevation climb over 1.13 miles. The 1st ½ mile is a gradual climb with some flat spots – a nice warm up. The 2nd half mile is laced with several steep pitches and deceptive “tops” forcing that extra push.

    By the way a “Dirtpee” is a Burpee in the dirt…not what it sounds like.

    I also think the elevation change is closer to 800ft based upon some topo maps I found. . . but what is 200′ elevation between friends?
