Course Description

The out and back Pine Line Trail Marathon course begins at the Medford City Park. Runners head north on the grass/dirt Pine Line Trail turning around at a halfway point.

The course follows a slight uphill grade to the turnaround and then returns with the same downhill grade to the finish.

The southernmost three miles of the Pine Line Trail are surfaced with limestone screening. The remainder of the trail is surface with crushed gravel. The Pine Line has gentle slopes not exceeding a 3% grade.
