The courses follow forest trails, and have long, mostly level stretches with some steep hills, which are tempered by switchbacks. Trails are flagged at frequent intervals with bright ribbon, and are cleared before the race to ensure they are mostly free of natural debris. Aid stations along the courses offer drinks every 2-3 miles. Amateur radio operators are stationed at each Aid Station and along other points in the course.
