Leg 4 - AKA the "Two-fer"
This leg IS NOT 7.95 miles of continuous running. It is a 4 mile downhill run, 1.65 mile drive in the van, and then a short, steep climb of 2.3 miles (see Leg 4.5 below for a full explanation). All of that equals out to running a 10k.
Leg 4.5 - aka "The Driver"
Due to a short section of Hwy 35 having little to no shoulder (we value your Gorgeous safety), we will have a one time "driving leg" (1.67 miles) for 2017 only. We have a Gorgeous 1.5 mile trail substitute for 2018!
