Get off of the asphalt and onto the dirt! For 2017, all distances willl be run entirely on packed, groomed dirt roads through working vineyards. Don’t just visit wine country – immerse yourself in it! As the sun rises on race day, you’ll head out into the beautiful Alexander Valley. With a mixture of flats and gently rolling hills, the course will take you amongst vineyards resplendent in fall colors, with views of the Russian River valley, on groomed private vineyard roads.
As all races are run on unnamed roads through private vineyards, and as we do not have permission to invite you to train on the course prior to race day, maps would be effectively useless. We will have maps for crew/spectator access points available at packet pickup and on race day.
We've created elevation profiles for each event. We're continuing to fine tune the course to make the distances as exact as possible, and to leave out unnecessary climbs wherever we can. Therefore, the course may change slightly by race day, but only for the flatter!
