As of 2017 the start/finish for Rockin' Rockwoods will be at Muckerman Shelter at Greensfelder County Park.
The Rockin' Rockwoods 53K course will be two out and back sections across the scenic Green Rock Trail and Fox Run Trail with 5200ft of elevation gain.
The Rockin' Rockwoods 1/2 Marathon will be an out and back across the Green Rock, Eagle Valley and Deer Run Trails with 2200ft of elevation gain.
The terrain ranges from hard-packed dirt to loose, uneven rock and extremely hilly, technical trails.
This is a challenging course of steep grades and rolling hills. Runners will be treated to 95% singletrack with rocks, roots, and creek crossings that make for a fairly technical out-and-back run.
***It is the athlete’s responsibility to know the course. While we mark the course to the best of our ability with signs, flour, volunteers, etc., in the end it becomes the athlete’s responsibility to know the course, based on the maps provided. We are not responsible for course sabotage or non-race personnel misdirecting athletes. And if you follow a pack of runners and know it’s the wrong way, don’t follow them. If there are any official course changes, a revised map will be posted on the website prior to the event AND announced at the race prior to the start***
