The Trail run events include 23km , 26.2m , 50m , and 60km trail runs. Note: there is an 11 hour time limit on any run.
The course starts on the shore of beautiful Kentucky Lake at Lighthouse Landing Resort in Grand Rivers, and proceeds south onto 453 for 1.5 miles, continuing on the Canal Loop Trail. The Canal Loop trail, is a scenic, well groomed 11.3 mile loop on mostly single-track between Kentucky and Barkley Lakes; offering many breathtaking views of the lakes, and several short challenging hills. The course finishes in Downtown Grand Rivers on J.H. O’Bryan Avenue in front of the Visitor Information office.
23k runners complete one 11.3 mile loop and go back to Grand Rivers for the finish. Marathoners run two loops, 60k run three loops, and 50 milers run 4 loops plus a short out and back before heading back to Grand Rivers for the finish.
Race amenities include performance type shirts, running caps, custom made belt buckles for the ultra finishers, and nice medals w/ribbons for 23k and Marathon finishers.
