The 63K course
Elevation Gain 5,040 feet and Loss 5,040 feet
The 63K Course will be 6 loops of the black loop/Moraine Ridge Trail. On the Lapham Peak trail map it states, “this loop is 7 miles”, but it is not. I measured it with a measuring wheel and it is 6.5 miles on the dot.
The black loop has some rolling hills along with a few very steep short hills and a three longer hill climbs; there are flat spots as well. The trail itself is wide (most places 12-15 feet) and consists of grass and hard packed dirt (unless it rains a lot) with some rocks and a few roots. This trail is not technical, rocky or absurd but you will have to keep your focus on the trail.
