The 4 Mile course will begin in the grassy area between Shelter #1 and the road. Athletes will make a sharp right just passed the volleyball net, run pass the shelters, and turn LEFT onto Big Loop Trail.
Once on Big Loop Trail, athletes will run 1.2 miles and make a LEFT to stay on Big Loop Trail headed towards the Greenway. The first .1 has a slight elevation gain, but then it’s all downhill to the greenway! The trail is wide and not very technical.
At the Atlantic & Yadkin Greenway, athletes will turn RIGHT and will stay on the greenway passed mile 2 to get to Little Loop Trail….passing the aid station at mile 1.7.
At mile 2.2, athletes turn RIGHT onto Little Loop Trail. This trail is single-track and somewhat technical. Plan your passes carefully and let the runner in front of you know you are passing! This trail will bring you back to the greenway at the mile 2 marker.
Athletes will turn LEFT onto the Greenway and proceed back to Big Loop Trail….passing the same aid station again!
Back at Big Loop Trail, athletes will turn LEFT onto the trail and stay LEFT at the split. And, of course, since the the other side of Big Loop was downhill, you know this section has to be…..UPHILL! You’re welcome! But it’s just the last ¼ mile….so WHOOO’s complaining?!
