The short course is the same as long course only you will turn north / right at Cass AR on Fanes Creek Rd and travel to the Summit Aid Station. From there you will follow the long course for the rest of the day. Despite it’s a little shorter you will still encounter significantly demanding conditions.
Short Course CUT OFF TIMES: You MUST average at least 6mph for the day – If you do not arrive at the Summit Aid Station in 2 hours you will be asked to return to Byrd’s. If you do not arrive at mile 19 (Hwy23 and W Fly Gap Rd) in 3 hours you will be asked to return to Byrd’s via hwy23/215.
