5.5 Mile Course (2 Laps) / 3.0 Mile Course (1 Lap): This is a great off road running experience! The race will start in the street (required for spacing) but will soon lead into and through the Chateau Elan Vineyards. The race course will go around the outer perimeter of the vineyards for .25 and then we will turn hard right into the beautiful vineyards (making 1 pass through the vineyard) until .40 miles. At .50 miles we will make another pass through the lower vineyard for about 75 yards then uphill (next to the tennis courts). At .65 we will cross over Rue Charlemagne Drive and then hard left onto a gravel fire road. Staying straight on the gravel road for about 25 yards then hard right (downhill) on the gravel road tapping onto and turning hard right onto Fluerie Drive at .75 miles (asphalt road). Stay on Fluerie Drive for about 175 yards then turning hard right onto the sweet double track dirt trail. Crossing over an asphalt drive and headed down hill the trail will turn to the right until you get to a par 3 green and pond! At the pond turn hard left following the multi surface trail around the pond. The 1 Mile Mark will be just before turning right at the tee box. After turning right at the tee box stay straight along the pond and across a small wooden bridge headed into some tight and twisty single track trail. About 1.25 Miles the route will cross over Haven Harbour Drive winding uphill staying on the single track trail. At 1.55 Miles Turn Hard Left Onto the Street. At 1.57 Miles Turn Hard Left Onto the Gravel Road. At 1.59 Miles Turn Hard Right Staying on Gravel Road. At 1.70 Miles Take a Soft Left Onto Asphalt Road… Fluerie Drive (downhill).
