Super Sprint and Sprint Run 2.8 miles
The 2.8 mile Sprint Run course is a 2-loop run around Deep Lake Park on the trail that surrounds the lake. Be sure to pay attention to the volunteers at the end of each loop so that you head in the right direction - either out to a 2nd loop or across the FINISH LINE.
Aid station at the beginning of each loop.
This run is unpaved and on a hard-packed gravel trail. You could opt for trail shoes, but they aren't necessary - regular running shoes will work just fine.
Olympic Run Course - 6.2 miles
The Olympic Run course is a flat, fast course (total elevation gain 214). Runners will exit transition and follow course markings taking them through a corner of the parking lot and then out to Veazie Cumberland road for a turnaround at the park entrance. After crossing the road, athletes head south through some pretty farmland and to an out-and-back on SE 384th St. Following the turnaround, you'll head back to the park and complete the run with a 1.4 loop around the lake on an unpaved trail. It's hard pack, but watch for intermittent roots and rocks. Trail shoes not necessary - Road shoes will work just fine.
Athletes familiar with the Black Diamond Tri Half Iron course will find this familiar
