The trail course has many short, steep inclines and declines. There is dense leaf
coverage in many areas as well as exposed roots and rocks. The trails are also
narrow. As of this email the course is dry and fast. There is, however, a
possibility for rain/snow towards the end of the week.
NYC Parks/Greenbelt crews, volunteers and King of the Mountain staff members
have done a great job removing major downed trees.
Although the majority of this race takes place along the Greenbelt trail system,
there are some unavoidable street crossings.
You are responsible to cross streets safely. Cars will not always stop for
you, so be vigilant and look both ways before you cross. We do try to
provide volunteers to monitor street crossings, but you must be careful!
50-K course: 12 street crossings
25-K course: 6 street crossings
10-K course: No street crossings
