COURSE: This beautiful course consists of 13.1 miles on John Bryan’s/Clifton Gorge’s most scenic hiking trails.

COURSE MAP: Click Here

COURSE DETAILS :This all new course starts in a grassy area near the parking lot by the campgrounds and follows the Arboretum trail, before cutting around the lodge and onto the upper rim trail. It will then transition to the Orton trail. You will turn around at the Bear’s Den where there will be an aid station. When you arrive back at John Bryan, you will go down a rocky climb to the lower rim trail and cross the bridge to run the South Gorge Trail. You will cross another bridge and then run back along the Pittsburg-Cincinnati Stagecoach trail until you climb back up to the Upper Rim Trail and follow that to the turn around. You will then repeat the loop (minus the arboretum trail) a second time, and finish at the Shelter in the Campground.

AID STATIONS: There will be 2-3 aid stations. The first aid station will be at the Bear’s Den, with a water stop at the lower rim trail after you cross the bridge, and the final aid station will be at the turn around before you head out on the second loop. Due to some parts of the trail being difficult to carry water/in/out of, you may have to go 4 miles without an aid station. (we will try to figure out a plan to prevent this, but, please plan accordingly.)

CUT OFFS: This trail race is a friendly race with generous cut-offs. You will have 4.5 hours to complete the distance.

AWARDS: 1st place overall (M/F), 1st place master (40+) (M/F), 1st place Grand Master (50+) (M/F), and 1st place Senior (60+)(M/F) will receive a custom made natural wood plaque. (Not eligible for additional age group awards).

First, second, and third place (M/F) in each age group will receive a custom made natural wood coaster/small plaque for the following age groups: 10-14, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 & up

Finisher’s Awards will be given. The last official finisher before 1:30 p.m. will receive a special “Longest Day” award- a custom-made natural wood plaque.
