Race Course

NOTE: The Garmin data data below shows 4.3 miles for the 1st lap. 2 other people ran with me the course and their Garmins stated 3.8 miles. So we will call the first lap 3.8 miles. The second lap (Long Course Only) does not include the first .7 miles of the first lap. Thus Short Course is about 3.8 miles with 1200 ft of elevation gain and the Long Course is about 7 miles with 2200 ft of elevation gain (

Update Sunday July 14th. Course is in Great Condition! Water Jugs at Start/Finish only. We added a 0.7 mile Shake Out Section to the course. There is a handful of very small/short snow piles that you’ll go thru. That’s it! We’ve changed the start/finish from Millicent to across the parking lot next to the Main Brighton Cafeteria building/next to Alpine Rose.

Start at Brighton Base/Cafeteria, climb road for short bit, right and back down behind Brighton Lodge/Motel. Follow service road over to Millicent base, up service road about a mile. Turn left onto Twin Lakes Single Track Trail, continue across and up to Lake Mary on a beautiful single track that dances thru a fortress of granite and trees. Take Lake Mary Trail down to Brighton Lodge to finish.
Long Course completes 2 laps however, on the 2nd lap, runners will not run on the first 0.7 miles shake out section depicted in the Garmin at the start of the first lap.

Short Course 3.8 miles 1200ft Elevation Gain

Long Course 7.0 miles 22000ft Elevation Gain
