Terrain:

The course opens with a hill and is double track for the first kilometer. After the second bridge you begin a
massive climb which marks the beginning of the first single track section. Be prepared for limited passing,
switchback climbs, a gully crossing and a screaming downhill. After 2.5km you are back on rolling double track.
You will cross a road at 3.25km then the Aid Station at 4.25km (water only) At 4.5km you have another steep
downhill followed by a large climb before reaching the water treatment plant. After the plant the course is flat double track until you reach the campground. Once at the campground you will run on a gravel road then one last section of single track before entering the stadium. 

Note Enduro & Half-Marathon runners need to stay left to begin their 2nd and 3rd lap. The key to success for Devon is a proper warm-up, be ready to hit your race pace at the start and you will be set for a great day of trail running. This race is chip timed so please place your number on your chest and do not fold or crumple it.
