The Huntsville Cross Country course is a 3 mile loop (really, it's more like a 1.5 mile out and back) on dirt trails with one significant hill. The course has a 1 mile and a 2 mile turnaround point. The RFH 50k does a 1 mile loop followed by 10 repeats of the 3 mile loop for 31 miles total. This year saw a record number of entrants and finishers, with 147 registrants and 81 finishers.
