Many a tree was rolled off the trail, snapped in a half, or brought down to a lower level. And thanks to the patented Reverse-Landing Strip* applied to the trail by the AmericaCorp mowing crews and the OTA the MFXC 4 route is getting ready to shred. If you want some of this, you will have to head to your favorite Northern Arkansas race next May.
Final course length looks to be about 28 miles with 9 miles of that on gravel. It's a little longer than wanted for a night non-race, so there will be a marked optional bail out of about 23 miles (a little over 9 on gravel) for those that worry about being out too long.
Not having a Lawman with us and his certified sawyering skills leaves you to hack away...
