Course Description
The CATHalf is a one-loop half-marathon with over 2500′ of vertical climbing. The Pounding Creek Marathon adds a second loop of the half-marathon course.  The 10-K will race will provide a shorter, but no less breathtaking experience on the Miller School Trails. 

Prizes will be awarded to top finishers, age group winners, as well as random runners in each race and, of course, there will be a fun and festive party at the race finish! The trails are maintained by students on the Miller School of Albemarle Endurance Team and we organize this race together with the MSA Endurance Team coach, Andy Guptill. A significant portion of the proceeds benefit the MSA Endurance Team.
