May 3 - 8th Tie Dye 32 Miler

A Great Spring Race!

Course Description:

      • 3 mile "few mile intro" on a park road that will be done once at the beginning of the race.
      • (START LOOP) The first 1.5 miles is fast and flat mostly over an old road gravel road bed with great footing and smooth sailing.
      • The second 2 miles is a rocky and rooty single track as you bound along the top of the gorge.  If you glance to your right, you can see the river and opposite cliff walls.  If it's wet you'll cross over two waterfalls
      • After a visit to the aid station (mile 3.3), a quick descent leads into 3 miles of cliffs and awesome rock features.  Very technical running over and around awesome geological features.  (This year we WILL be crossing over the large foot bridges)
      • At the end of each loop you get 2 solid climbs of ~180' (steep rocky old steps), with a ~200' decent in 1 mile.
      • Repeat Loop 3 more times. (4 total)
