Racers will start at Haller Park Bridge, ride north 7.25 miles. Once reaching the Nakashima Barn, racers will turn around and head south 7.25 miles. This is one of the most beautiful parts of the 30-mile long Centennial Trail. Often on this ride, you will encounter deer, rabbits, eagles, lizards, frogs, slugs and caterpillars. This is truly an over-the-river, through the woods, over a farm, to a barn...and back...kind of race. Enjoy the views. Race hard!
