Hot Mess Trail Races
The course for the Hot Mess Trail Races is almost all on the trails aside from a short section of pavement. This is a fast and mostly flat route that has a few sandy and rooted sections with a mixture of single track and wider open sections. The half marathon is a lollipop course, and you'll run two loops of the lollipop and come back to the finish. There will be an aid station at miles 1.5, 6.5, and 11.5. The 6-hour course is on a 5.5-ish mile loop with an aid station at the start/finish around mile 4.
