Image of the finish line of  Leg #6  
Difficulty: Hard
Topography: Challenging climb, then rolling
   
Description:

No easing into it. A significantly steep climb starts as you leave the TZ, not letting up for 1.4 miles. A roughly ½ mile downhill to the ‘T’ at Rag Hollow Road allows you some recovery time. Make the right onto Rag Hollow Road (1.9 mi.) and follow it, rolling and climbing to the TZ, crossing a gas line cut at 2.6 miles that provides great views both left and right.

IMPORTANT! Relay teams and ultra support vehicles will want to get back on the road as soon as your runner leaves TZ #6, as the next leg will be fast AND you will need to take extra time getting down the mountain. The road becomes VERY STEEP and narrow in spots with loose gravel. Take your time and be careful!

 

   
Transition Zone 6: Gated road to the Greenwood fire tower. Parking is on the left-hand side, before the TZ zone; handoff on the right. Port-o-let available.
