Marathon Course Notes:
- The course is predominantly paved with 2 dirt/gravel road sections.
- The first dirt/gravel section is approximately Mile 6 – 6.5 and is a flat section adjacent to the river.
- The second section of dirt/gravel road is Mack Woodie Dr. (Miles 17.5 – 18.5), which is a new section of the 2015 course. This section has one aggressive uphill (mile 17.9-18.0), otherwise it’s gently rolling. Mack Woodie Dr is a private road and cannot be viewed in advance of the Marathon. You will be charmed by this section of the Marathon course.
- After Mack Woodie Dr, the Call Creek hill (miles 18.6 – 19.1) is paved, 0.5 mile long and has 195 ft of gain. At Mile 18.9 is a dog rescue facility. It is fully fenced and the dogs are friendly and secure…although they do bark.
- The start is on the Cranberry Springs Bridge, which straddles the New River. You will be starting above the New River.
- The finish is on grass. The final 100 meters is grass in the field behind the Riverside Restaurant.
