The Gold Discovery Run starts at the Kinross Fort Knox Gold Mine that covers historic mining territory and traverses through trails and gravel roads, leading to a flat, paved sprint to the finish. This year Kinross completed upgrades to the first 3-4 miles of the course, and moved the trail to the west for a new course length to 16.8 miles. 

As the start is on an active mining road and there is no parking at the start, for safety and of necessity runners are required to take a shuttle bus from the Silver Gulch Brewery (Fox Roadhouse) to the starting point. Start times are 8:00 am for runners expecting to take more than 3 hours and 9:00 am for runners expecting to take less than 3 hours. Busses will depart 45 minutes prior to race starting times at 7:15 am and 8:15 am, respectively
