Little Diamond Pond, Coleman State Park
North Country Community Recreation Center, Colebrook
Runners started the race at Coleman State Park, which lies just north of Route 26 on Diamond Pond Road in Stewartstown, the main road along which runners will make their way westward toward Colebrook for much of the race.
The race starting time is 10:30 AM for both individual runners and the first-leg runners of the two-person relay teams, who then head south on Diamond Pond Road. They turn right and head westbound on Route 26, along the Mohawk River, and follow into the town of Colebrook.
Once they reach the roadway on Route 26 — about 5.3 miles into the race — runners then begin a stretch that will keep them on this road for nearly the next 7 miles, winding westward all the way into Colebrook to the finish line at the North Country Community Recreation Center, which will end at the bottom of the hill on Lynch Road.
Along the way, the course offers up mile after mile of a mostly very gradual downhill descent through the countryside here in the Great North Woods, with stretches through the forests alternating with views of farm fields, barns and pastoral scenes on either side of the road.
The course will drop by about 1,200 feet in elevation over the 13.1 miles between Coleman State Park and Colebrook, and the last mile or so in to the finish line will be almost completely flat, winding through town streets.
