The 2014 course will challenge everyone, novice and expert alike. It begins with a run to the water for a two-lap, 1K lake swim. The mountain bike course has a nice mix of technical and fast sections and is truly a course for everyone. The famous trail run will be the same with a grueling climb up Fire Tower Road, finishing at the beach where the SKYHIGH Crew will be waiting and cheering.
Life Is Awesome!!!
