Line Mountain 3.5 Miler 1998
The Line Mountain 3.5 Miler is 3.5 miles of racing through the woods. The course consists of a variety of terrains from rocks, mud, ruts, hills, and straight-a-ways.
Typically the 3.5 miler uses some of the same course as the 7 miler but is run in a different direction. Some years racers run several laps from 4 laps to 10 laps.
The following pictures are from the “Mud Hole” about 2 miles into the course. This is the biggest single attraction in the 3.5 miler. Competitors drop down about 8 feet into a Mud/Water hole about 1.5′ deep then have to crawl back up a hill on the other side. A tow vehicle sits at the ready and the area is loaded with drowned vehicles by the end of the day. I would have had more pictures from elsewhere but with all the trees my camera wouldn’t take pictures unless in the sun.
