Wynne High School stadium
Start and finish are located at Wynne High School stadium, with plenty of parking.
Laid out along the scenic highway at the base of Crowley's Ridge overlooking expanses of Delta farmland. The course is a mix of flat and rolling terrain. The elevation at the start/finish line is 270 feet above sea level. The lowest point is 230 feet. The highest point is 350 feet. The rest of the course is very light rolling terrain.
The first mile is flat. The largest hill of the race starts at mile 1, climbs for 1/2 a mile and ends at mile 2. You won't feel it leaving, but you will on your way back.
From mile 2 to mile 5, the course is flat. At mile 5, you will turn north on Hwy 163 (Crowley's Ridge National Scenic Byway).
If you are doing the half, you will travel about a mile and a half on this road and then turn around and head back. The half turn-around is marked by two bales of hay in the middle of the road.
The rest of you will remain on this road and turn around at mile 13. This section on Hwy 163 is a beautiful 2-lane road. Crowley’s Ridge lies just west of the road and Mississippi River Delta lies to the east. This section rolls the entire way. The grade is gentle, but there is tons of 1/4 and 1/2 mile rises and falls with elevation changes of 20 to 45 ft. They don't make you huff and puff, but the course is not pancake flat.
