The Wicked Worm is held at Robinette’s Apple Haus trails, maintained by the West Michigan Trail Runners. It is the most technical local trail with a ton of roots, punchy climbs and switchbacks. The loops are 4.2 miles long, and the course includes orchard running with the single track. Halfway through was an aid station with ice cold water. I had a plan focused on consistency with minimal rest and mostly moving, running as much uphill as possible. I did not bring a chair or anything that might entice me to take a break.
