39th Annual

Gold Discovery Run

The new Gold Discovery Run course utilizes trails and backroads, lying along the ridges above the creek where Felix Pedro discovered gold in 1902. The 16.5-mile course starts at the Fort Knox mine haul road and follows the former Fairbanks to Circle City mining trail over rolling to steep terrain thru the forests for 7-1/2 miles. After intersecting Gilmore Trail the course follows Gilmore and then Gold Mine Trail, to it's intersection with the Steese Highway, near mile 14.5. The last 2 miles follow the Steese and Old Steese Highways to the Silver Gulch Brewery in Fox..

Two starting times were again offered, to better accomodate walkers and slower runners at the post-race barbecue. Busses departed the Silver Gulch Brewery between 7:15 am and 8:30 am,
to meet the two race starts from the Fort Knox Mine Road - shortly after8 am and 9 am
