2020 Virtual Course (~10km)
The virtual course strikes a middle ground between our traditional 7K and 12K courses, while keeping the best elements of both. The race starts off fast along cross-country style grass paths before hitting the hills in earnest in the woods.
The kids’ 1k course is a gentle loop on grassy trails. Just right for getting kids hooked on exploring the beautiful trails at Indian Lake County Park. We also have a 100-yard dash for smaller kids. Parents, feel free to join youngsters either as an event in itself or a warmup for the 7k and 12k.
The 7k course loops around Indian Lake on grassy trails, which provide wonderful views of the park and surrounding valley. After a hard climb into the wooded hills and fast descent, runners head for the finish.
The 12k course has a little bit of everything. Training for Black Hawk Ridge? Ready to take on a longer trail challenge? Run Indian Lake’s rolling hills over a mix of singletrack, rough-hewn grassy trail, and double-wide ski trails. Want to turn on the jets? It’s not all hills. There’s a relatively ﬂat half-mile stretch near the end where you can show off your speedwork.
