Leg 8 – Home Run– 18 Km
It’s the home stretch; you make your way back to St Paul, using roads, the other ridge(old logging road), fields, lake-shore and boardwalk. A hero’s welcome will be waiting for everyone at the finish line. This leg is one of the more challenging legs with all kinds of terrain and one of the longest…also there is a strong possibility you might have to run it at night.
