Race Start

Francis Howell High School

Park on the South end of campus.

Marked with reflective arrows at every turn. Vehicles should be at most trail interactions depending on conditions. Some turns will also be taped off. It should be very clear. It’s recommended to download the gpx and use GPS if you are not familiar with the tails.

Race will start on the GreenWay just South of the High School. It will proceed down the Hamburg Trail, past the DOE Containment “Mound”. At about 2 miles it will drop into the Lost Valley Trail and follow the double track and single track around counter clockwise.

It is a mix of crushed limestone, gravel, and dirt/rocky single track. Total distance is 13.5 miles.

There is a “rain-out” course that follows the same start and finish but stays on the double track. It will reduce the race to about 10 miles
