Route and distance: The route will begin near the Gregg Township Elementary School in Spring Mills and will then follow scenic country roads around the mountain known as Egg Hill for a total of 10 miles, ending back at the school. The route is wheel measured and is mostly paved, with a mile and a half or so of well-maintained unpaved road.

 Egg Hill Course 

Course Elevation Profile

Runners may register to run the full course as a solo race or may run as a three-person medley relay team. Two-person teams may also compete in the three-person category, with any order acceptable, as long as each runner does at least one leg. Leg lengths are 3.0 miles, 5.0 miles, and 2.0 miles, as shown on the map. All legs are wheel-measured.

Leg 1: Begins at the baseball field behind the Spring Mills Elementary School and heads east through Spring Mills and then south out of town. The second half of this 3-mile leg includes a long moderate uphill of about a mile, the most difficult of the course.

Leg 2: The first half of this 5-mile leg consists of gently rolling hills, with beautiful views of Georges Valley along the way. The last half is mostly on Egg Hill Road, a well-maintained gravel road that cuts across a bit of the western end of the mountain. It begins on the level, proceeds to a steep .3-mile uphill, and then goes through a couple of moderate hills before ending the leg on the level.

Leg 3: This leg is just right for the sprint home. The entire 2 miles runs alongside Sinking Creek and is virtually flat, with a very slight drop of 20 feet or so over the length of the leg.

Team vehicles will always wait at the the next transition zone for the current runner, and then proceed to the following zone after the transition. Runners may drive or you may want to have a seperate driver. Two-person teams will be much better off with a driver.
