Nashville, IN – Brown County State Park
Difficulty rating: Hills: 5 / Surface: 3 (1=easy, 5=difficult)
Stunning terrain, challenging hills, and meticulously constructed trails. The rewards of running in the Qdoba DINO Trail Run at Brown County State Park! The Brown County event has become one of the series' most popular venues.
This is the only course this year with mile-long climbs and downhills - much different than the other races in the series. The course starts uphill for the first mile before flattening a bit. The 5k heads back downhill for a mile-long downhill to the finish. 15k will make a left turn that sends runners onto a loop containing several long climbs and descents. 15k will finish with the same long downhill as the 5k.
Make it a weekend! There's plenty to do for family and friends, including swimming pool, camping, hiking, and nearby shopping and attractions of Nashville . Most of the race course is on the mountain bike trail, which will be used the following day for a DINO Mountain Bike Series event.
