Each course is assessed in terms of difficulty across four areas, measured on a scale of 1 to 3 of difficulty:

Elevation Gain: How much climbing you’ll do across the entire event
Altitude: How high the lowest point on the course is above sea level
Terrain: The type of surfaces you’ll be running or walking on
Weather: The average high and low temperatures expected on event day
