Each course is on commonly used trails, though some sections include rocks, roots, and narrowed segments. These trail networks are a great for all ages and levels to run on. Each course will be marked with orange pin flags and white chalk. One aid station stocked with water and light snacks will be at the start/finish line for runners only.
The course will be well-marked with orange pin flags, "WRONG WAY" signs, and arrow signs. Three orange pin flags indicate a TURN and arrow signs will be at critical turns.
We plan to hold the event in person as envisioned, although we will be incorporating a number of safety precautions for volunteers and runners (see below), including a 50 participant cap. We will be closely monitoring CDC, local, and state guidelines, and will adjust as necessary, but we feel confident that this event will go forward as planned.
*Runners may be required to wear a face covering either during the race or near the start / finish line.
**Runners may start in waves of 5-10 to limit exposure.
This is a grassroots event benefiting the local trail systems. Accordingly, event management will not issue any refunds associated with this event, under any circumstances. Any residual profits will be donated to a local land trust of the event organizers choosing. We will make every effort to defer your credit towards another race we organize in the event of a mass cancellation.
