The 22.75 mile loop is a mixed surfaces course with road and fast gravel sectors. The course loops back onto itself through the Holland High School parking lot. This tight 180 is intended to slow speeds down and allow safe feed zone grabs. A fence line will allow mussett bags and bottles to be attached and grabbed on the go. There will also be a neutral Nuun feedzone station to fill up water bottles. For the July edition, putting coolers on the ground with your bottles inside on ice is the best strategy.
Bathrooms and registration will be located in the High School cafetorium.
