Course: Most of the course is very hilly and demanding. 99% of the course is on grass, but there is some asphalt the runners will be running on. Please remind your runners to wear appropriate shoes. The course will be mowed and marked clearly with little yellow flags on both sides of the running area. There will be painted arrows on every turn so no one gets confused. There will also be road monitors to stop traffic if necessary. I will be sending a copy of the course map with this packet. The course is an official 3.1 mile race.

Parking:  There will be a $5 parking fee for cars and trucks to park at the course.  Free parking will be available at Christiansburg High School with a bus acting as a shuttle on a 20 minute rotation.
