About 40 percent of the course offers shade and the course has equal uphill and downhill segments (with a long downhill stretch toward the finish). Competitors will run across manicured lawn, through hay fields, through hardwood forests, along a creek, past: ponds, horses, cows, donkeys, corn fields, Conestoga Wagons, a locomotive train, a windmill and other unique scenery.
