Course Information:    
10K: The 10K and half-marathon start at the same time. The 10K runs the first 5 miles of the half-marathon course and then splits off back to the finish.

Half Marathon:
The run will be 90% on scenic single-track trails, using some or all of the following park trails: Bottoms loop, Lake Loop, Helen Trail, and the mountain bike trail.  While trail races are a bit different, difficulty-wise from road races, this course is not crazy technically challenging, and is a great first race for trail newbies
Miles 1-4 - is flat non-technical terrian
Mile 4-5 - is rolling terrian and the most techincal section of the course, mostly just navigatiing tree roots.
Mile 5-6 - is 250 feet of elevation gain on a gradual climb with switchbacks. (longest climb of the course)
Mile 6-7 - a LONG fast decent!
Miles 7-9 - this is the flat road in Helen, then a gentle climb followed by fast decent to the creek crossing.
Yes You Will Have A Creek Crossing! It' is about calf deep, so you WILL get your feet wet!
Mile 9 to the finish - rolling hills with some short steep climbs, (30-60 seconds) of climbing or hiking, then flat or down. The last 1/2 mile is flat and down hill.
