10 Mile, 10k, and 5k TRAIL RUN in the hills around Hart Park.

The races will be at Hart Park, Section 2 and will be hilly. This is a TRAIL RUN. This will NOT BE RUN on a bike path and will include hills, dirt, uneven terrain, rocks and other natural debris that comes with running on a non-paved surface. Please plan to pack water and any special nutrition you may want on trail. There will be aid stations with water and Gatorade, but due to the course being on trail they will not be every mile.

This trail is kid friendly, not stroller friendly, and we ask that you please do not bring your dog. There will be places that this trail runs as single track trail. Please be mindful of your safety and the safety of others. We ask that if you wear headphones you please keep one ear free to hear other runners or race instructions.

Races Start at 7:30 a.m.

Discount offered for BTC MEMBERS! 


The 5k

The 5K course is a looping course that will run along the river then head up to the hills of Hart Park; starting and ending in Section 2 of Hart Park.

The 10k
The 10K course is a looping course that will run along the same course as the 5K until the second aid station, then be prepared to climb! This course starts and ends in Section 2 of Hart Park.

The 10 miler
The 10M course is a looping course that will run along the same course as the 5k and 10k runs. Just like the 10k, after the second aid station be prepared to start climbing! This is definitely not the easiest 10 mile jaunt through the hills. Be prepared to work those legs as you climb and enjoy the hills of Hart Park. Like the 5k and 10k runs, the 10M starts and ends in Section 2 of Hart Park.

Award will be given for the top three finishers (male/female) in each event.
