4-Mile Course Notes:

  1. The Start and Finish Lines for the 4-Mile are located on the gravel road of The Woodshed.
  2. The course is predominantly paved with 3 dirt/gravel road sections:
    • The first dirt/gravel section is the Start – Mile 0.15.
    • The second section follows a private right-of-way along Call Creek (Mile 2.0 – 3.0).
    • The Finish is on the gravel/dirt road of The Woodshed.
  3. Race Flow:
    • Start – Mile 0.5: Gradual uphill start with rolling hills to Mile 0.5
    • Mile 0.5 – 1.4: Long downhill (-253 ft).  Easy warm-up, but save those quads.
    • Mile 1.4 – 1.7: Flat along the New River as you progress through downtown Fleetwood (-8 ft).
    • Mile 1.7 – 1.9: A short climb as you depart the river valley and enter an enchanting private gravel lane along Call Creek.
    • IMPORTANT: Mack Woodie Dr (Mile 1.9 – 3.1) is a private right-of-way and can only be accessed during the New River Marathon.  DO NOT attempt to run this section outside of NRM.
    • Mile 1.9 – 3.1: Only +29 ft on this scenic stretch as you prepare for the final uphill and the push to the finish, but the one short, steep incline may give the perception of a greater gain.
    • Mile 3.1 – 3.6: The end is near! Hang in there! (+196 ft)
    • Mile 3.6 – Finish: To The FINISH!
  4. Support Stations: One station at Mile 3.  Refer to the Race Day Logistics page for details.
