The 20k course will begin at the Angel Bridge at 7:00a.m. CST just like the 40 mile course. After a loop around Lake Joe Long runners will pop out in the Lodge House area and follow a short section of gravel where they will split from the 40 mile runners and reenter a section of single track to their right. Once on the single track the 20k course will follow the Latimer Reservation Mountain Bike Trail in its entirety with the exception of a .8 mile out and back down to the abandoned Dark Hollow Mines where runners will turn and have a climb back out of around 300ft. Once back up top runners will continue to follow the Mountain Bike course all the way back to Angel Bridge following the bluff line along the Bee Creek Gorge. The course is primarily flat to gently rolling and very runnable with some field sections and just a bit of gravel.
Cutoff for the 20k will be 5 hours which means an average pace of just under 25 minutes per mile
20K participants will have the opportunity to reserve a spot to stay at Latimer Reservation the night before the race in one of the Male/Female Lodge Houses, one the Tent City tents, or in their own tent
