The course winds through mostly wooded, single track trails of the idyllic Watters Smith State Park. The low-technical trails are great for beginners yet still challenging for experts due to their rolling nature and several short, steep climbs. In dry periods road shoes are suitable on this course.
Start and Finish for all races is at Main Pavilion near the Park Ranger’s station on the Eastern-most side of the Park.
The 25K race is one single loop traversing most of the Park’s formal trail system, plus a few miles of primitive trails in an undeveloped section of the Park. The 50K is a two-loop course. Course maps for 50K/25K will be posted in early 2020.
The 10K/5K is the traditional Test The Watters course using the Fawn, Black Cherry, White Oak, Rachel Hershey, Trick Track Trek, and Dogwood Trails.
