Event descriptionSaturday, WRE Sprint, Lehigh University Sunday, Middle, Hickory Run State Park Monday, WRE Long, South Mountain Park
Terrain descriptionSaturday - Urban (college campus) Sunday - Hickory Run covers the gamut, from the grassy, flat terrain at Sand Spring Lake to the cliff faces along the actual Hickory Run creek. White woods abound, but there's also plenty of mountain laurel and rhododendron, impassible in places. The Park itself has the famous Boulder Field, which, though not part of the competition area, is a good indicator of much of the ground, and there are many charcoal platforms Monday - The wooded area is rocky, although there are few boulders, and also includes some marshy ground.
