The Race Director is setting the pace at the bottom of the Big Hill.
CourseDescription Start and finish at the end of Beach Road. Starts by running up the sandbar hill, then to and through the RV camping area, to the cabin area and back, then 1.7 miles of wooded trail (off the tennis court parking lot area), then to the Blue Hole parking lot and back, finish downhill back to the sandbar parking lot. Course History Conceived and planned by Blaine Wilcher, McMinnville, who wanted a race to run (in). Originally a one-loop 5K that involved a half mile on trail. Course was modified by Park Manager David England to consist of three out and back sections. Inaugural race was October 10, 2009. The course was changed again in 2010 to a 5 miles course with a downhill finish. Considered difficult and very hilly.
