Upping the adventure value with a point to point format, entrants will run from the town of Ulysses to a finish just shy of the Ithaca Commons. Runners will have a gently rolling opening road mile with the Cayuga Lake valley to one side. From there the course runs downhill over a road half mile before accessing the Black Diamond Trail. From there entrants will be treated to 4.5 miles of a gentle downhill grade over hard-packed cinder, passing numerous waterfalls along the way. After leaving the BDT runners will run point to point along the Cayuga Lake Waterfront Trail, before exiting for a final mile and half through Ithaca's Fall Creek neighborhood to finish just shy of the Ithaca Commons.
