Olympic Bike Course - 40 kilometers (24.8 miles)
Athletes familiar with the Black Diamond Long Course Bike Course will recognize this as identical to the northern course from the last few years.
You'll travel north out of the park along Veazie-Cumberland and travel some beautiful rural roads, and eventually right toward Selleck on Kanaskat-Kangley Road. After a turn-around in Ravensdale on Kent-Kangley road, you'll make your way to your aid station at Mile 15. There will be water, gatorade, and powergels. Volunteers will guide you at every turn, so don't worry through those longer straight stretches.
In Cumberland, you'll be directed to a 2.5 mile out-and-back on SE 352nd St. and then return to Nolte for the run.
