Course information

Thousands of runners have come to Maybury State Park to train for a reason. There’s a great 8 foot wide paved path that runs through a thick canopy of trees. The course is a bit deceiving with its slight upgrade to the turnaround then that its a slight downhill back to the finish line.  You get to see everyone as it takes on the shape of an upside down lollipop, and the out and back section is where it gets fun.   Aid stations will be at every mile with water and Gatorade Endurance Formula on ice.
