The course hasn't changed since 1970, and is a challenging loop with eight
turns, including two hairpins, and several short, but significant, climbs and
descents. The race distance will vary between 9 and 45 miles depending on the
number of laps run by the specific race category. Each lap is about 0.9 miles.

This race is called a Classic with good reason, running on the same course since 1970. See race photos from
