Following an included 15 minute bus ride from the staging area at Mohican Adventures to Perrysville race start, the race will begin in the State Scenic Mohican River near Perrysville where racers will depart and travel about 6 miles downriver and through historic downtown Loudonville and on to the Mohican Adventures landing, not far past the Wally Road bridge crossing and on the right. River conditions may vary but typically include mostly flat water with a few class 1 ripples. Sit atop Kayaks will be provided by Mohican Adventures. (No private kayaks allowed) Kayaks are included in the entry fee and will be located at the Perrysville race start. Mohican Adventures staff will be available to make sure everyone has a flotation device and assist, if necessary, with entering and exiting the kayaks. All participants must carry/wear a PFD (life jacket) included with entry. Racers exiting their kayaks will then transition from Mohican Adventures landing to their nearby parked vehicles. Racers must walk their mountain bikes to and from the starting line. Safety FIRST!

Stage Two: Mountain Bike Trail Ride (5.6 miles)

Racers will depart from Mohican Adventures start/finish line, following a short route that leads across a small stream and beneath SR3 up to the paved Bike Trail. Safety First, NO SR3 ROAD CROSSING ALLOWED. Racers will turn left on the paved bike trail toward a split sign that says, "Runners Left/Mountain Bike Right". Bikers will veer right and straight up onto the off-road trail following Mohican 100 Signage along what is known as the "Short Loop Trail". Once around the short loop (5 miles), racers will follow signage returning to the paved bike trail then right, underneath SR3 toward the finish line and next transition area. Once the line is crossed, racers can exchange their leg anklets or transition to running shoes at their parked vehicle. Safety First: All participants must wear a Snell approved helmet.

Stage Three: Trail Run (6.6 miles)

Runners will then cross the start/finish line following the bike route up to the split sign that says. "Runners Left/Mountain Bike Right". Runners will remain on the pavement, veering left but staying on the right side of SR3 along the bike path following Mohican 100 signage to the Mohican State Park Entrance. Runners will turn right, entering the park, following Mohican 100 signs straight back until just before Mohican bridge crossing. Here runners will turn right then immediately left following the trail along the river toward the newly constructed suspension bridge spanning the Mohican River. Runners will cross the bridge, exiting to the left and up a steep climb toward the Gorge Overlook before enjoying a less steep run back down to the river turning right along the river before crossing back over the suspension bridge, doubling back through the park toward the finish line.
