Leg 6: On to the next Lake –We’ve saved the most challenging segment for our 40 mile runners. This is 9 total miles of up and down. After stocking up at the Crooked Lake Aid Station at HWY SS, runners continue north on the IAT winding along a ridge that rises and falls as it twists and turns. You’ll see lakes and kettles on both sides. The first 1.2 miles from Crooked Lake are mainly wide, pine covered trail with easy, gradual, rolling terrain.
Cross Division Road, (it’s literally a dirt access road) stay on the IAT…marked with brown posts and yellow signs….and head towards HWY F. This 2.0 mile segment is single and double track with rocks, roots, twists and turns. All the fun trail runners look for. 3-4 steep climbs (BTW you have to cover them again on the way back). You will see a segment we call the Valley of the Fallen Giants…. Look left and right to see massive oak, poplar, and ash trees pushed over, snapped off, and uprooted from a storm in 2018.
Cross HWY F, look both ways, and find the IAT marker for your final 1.3 mile segment of this 9 mile leg. This segment is a combination of single track, double track, and eventually wide, grass covered trail. Take the steps down to the aid station, refuel, rest as long as you need, and head back south to finish your amazing race. You are on your way to completing your 40 mile race. Every step forward is one closer to home! (4.5 miles out)
