Race to the Canal


This is a point-to-point race, starting at 3 different locations along the North-South Trail. Your race category determines which location you will start from. The race will follow the North-South Trail north towards the Canal Loop. Once at the Canal Loop, racers will proceed north on the Kentucky Lake side of the Loop, and finish at the Canal Bridge. Starting locations: All locations are accessible by vehicle, off of The Trace. Each location will be marked, at the intersection of The Trace and the specific road by a sign. Starting Point A - Cat 1, Pro, 34 Open - Trailhead at Hwy 68 - 37 Miles. Starting Point B - Cat 2, Combined 50+, Single Speed - Sugar Bay Road 140 - 25 Miles. Starting Point C - Cat 3, Juniors - Birmingham Ferry Rd, Road 114 - 14.5 Miles. No shuttle service. Racers are responsible for their transport to race start locations. The North-South Trail is primarily singletrack, but also has some gravel road sections. It is more “backcountry” and less groomed than the Canal Loop, with dense wooded areas, some rough creek crossings, and a mixture of steep to rolling hills and descents. The full trail has approx. 3500 feet of elevation change.
