About the Course: The race begins by the log cabin along the entrance road to the lake and make a short steep climb into the parking lot. At the other end of the lot the course turns right up the hill. No prologue this year - climb the Fireroad to Jungle Pass and go from there. This year the 2 laps will both utilize Lakeview Trail since the fireroad is still wiped out by the ice storm. Lap 1 is the same fall all racer while lap 2 will climb up Charlie's at the back end of the lake and finish on Chadway Trail.
During the race, the course is extremely well marked and the Roane County Fire and Rescue Squad has personnel stationed at numerous points around the lake. However, it is your responsibility to know the race course. We will not be closing off trails at crucial intersections. It will be well marked but you need to know which way to go!
