Course Description

The first eight miles of the Drake Well Marathon are the most challenging. From about miles 1 to 2, runners will climb a 300 foot hill (and descend the same). Then from just after mile 3 to mile 5, runners will climb a little over 300 feet over the course of two miles.

The final, flatter 15 miles are and out-and-back section alongside historic Oil Creek, with a full canopy of trees to protect runners from the elements.
