Course Details:  Starting at Prescott Park this is a 10 Mile & 5k Mountain Trail Run that loops up, down, around and through the roots and rambles on Roxy Ann Peak in Medford.

5k – Starts at at the third gate, runs clockwise on the main road around the mountain, past the quarry, past the aid station, turning right back up the road at the third gate and finishing in the Prescott Park picnic area.

10 Mile –  Starts at the third gate where the road splits to go up to the picnic area. You follow the road up and around the back side of Roxy Ann clockwise and then pass the rock quarry. Stay on the main road all the way back down below the second gate a little ways where there is a marked turnaround. You go back up past the second gate and then turn right up onto the Mardrone Trail. Once you get back up to the road (aid station here), run across it and continue following the rocky trail switchbacking all the way to the peak. You then jump on a different trail and come down the north side of Roxy Ann which will dump you out onto the road right at the picnic area. This is the 10k point here and will also be the finish line when you come back up the second time. You then take the road all the way back down again to the turnaround below the second gate, take Mardrone Trail again back up to the aid station. This time you will turn right on the road and head towards the rock quarry and follow the road back around counter clockwise this time to the finish line at the Prescott Park picnic area.
