Certified Course:
Course Elevation Profile

The course will start and finish in front of the Derby Community Building and it will be run in a counter-clockwise direction facing traffic.  The turns and some straights will be marked with yellow arrows painted on the highway. It's your responsibility to look for them.  It's 31.5 miles on 3 loops of rolling hills in a beautiful country setting on asphalt and dirt.  It's a great event for those wanting to do their first ultra run.  There is no cut off.  This is a 31.5-mile fun run with no bells & whistles.  The course is not closed to traffic. Derby Road is in the middle of nowhere but travelers use it to get somewhere.  SO, IN ADDITION TO EXERCISING YOUR BODY PLEASE EXERCISE CAUTION!  This is a very low key, no frills race.  If you are expecting port-a-potties, expos or to be waited on, I suggest you stay home.

There will be 3 aid stations with energy drink & water, chips, cookies, etc...... 
You will pass each aid station 3 times.  However, in an effort to minimize trash, please bring a water bottle belt or hand held bottle with you.
