This out and back course starts and finishes at Black Birch Vineyard and will be a favorite of runners from all ability levels. There is 498 ft. of climbing with endless scenery that includes rural roads, babbling brooks and rolling farmland. The first 1.7 miles will give you a flat warm-up on your way to the first climb into Whately alongside West Brook. From there you will make your way onto a beautiful dirt road section, the last climb of the day and the turnaround. The second half of the course will be fast, downhill and full of scenery as you make your way back to Black Birch Vineyard and the post race celebration!
