Default Here are some GPS maps for the races...

Here is the GPS of the MTB Course
Mileage is about 10.5 miles, Garmin reads short.

http://app.strava.com/rides/9023080

It consist of the following trails;
Pate, Wolfpelt, Treehugger, Greenbrier, Chute, Wantz, Valley, Coke Can, Four Dogs, Gorge, Bone, Cambodia and Carl's Trail.
NO BAYOU AND WTF for the Race, but look for it in the EPIC in December.


Here is the GPS of the 21k Trail Run Course
Mileage is about 12.7 miles, Garmin reads short.

http://app.strava.com/segments/955791

It consist of the following trails;
Pate, Wolfpelt, Treehugger, Greenbrier, Chute, Wantz, Valley, Coke Can,WTF, Bayou, Crist Falls, Four Dogs, Gorge, Bone, Cambodia and Carl's Trail.

Note: The 5K course is PATE and Wolfpelt, then back to the Trailhead
The 10k is the 5k, plus Treehugger, Greenbreir, the end of Cambodia and Carl's Trail. ( a green loop with wolfpelt added )

The 5K and 10K are pretty accurate on distances.

If there are still any questions on the course, please feel free to ask.
