The course for all distances is a 6.55 loop that is regarded as some of the best trails in Indiana. Nestled within the city limits of Winona Lake it is a rolling course with bridges and various man made “fun” items! When you are running on this course you have no idea how close you are to civilization!

You start with single track that runs along a stream and crossing a wooden bridge takes you back along its other side. The trail winds its way along a ridge to make your way to the top. You spend the next 3-miles weaving your way along and around the ridge top until you drop back into the valley and then roll yourself to a pine tree section where the aroma is going to tell you if you don’t see them! The last section brings you back along the stream and then over a small ridge to the finish line!
