Course Description

From the race website- The beautiful course begins at the Morgan Hill Centennial Center. It will wind through the local, scenic hills.

After a few miles you will find yourself passing Uvas Reservoir. As you gradually make your way uphill, you will make a right turn and pass Chesbro Reservoir. Another turn takes you downhill through Willow Springs Road and proceeds across Morgan Hill towards the east side hills. The last 10 miles are fast and flat, primarily downhill. Coming back west down Dunne Avenue you will then go left on Monterey back to the Centennial Center.
