The Nasty 9 course uses multiple trails at Brushy Hills and includes over 2000 ft of elevation gain. For our virtual event, the course will be marked with white streamers for the month of September. We will check these each weekend. But to be on the safe side, use the course map and turn sheet below to make sure you stay on course.
Please note: the course we are using for the virtual event is the original course from the 2017 race. It begins and ends and the spring house near the parking area. We will not be using the modified start/finish on the private land adjacent to Brushy Hills.
