Description

Join Trivium Racing for their Thanksgiving weekend tradition! Relax on Thanksgiving and hit the trails for your holiday running race on Black Friday for our half marathon. This race will be taking place on the beautiful trails of Proud Lake State Recreation Area.  The trails are well groomed and have very little in the way of hills!

Leave the crowds to the mall, and come on out for a great race. One of the best parts about The Black Toenail Friday Half and 7.5 mile race is that you can sleep in. With an 11:00 AM start time, you can relax and enjoy Thanksgiving knowing you have plenty of time before the starting gun goes off. This event usually sells out, so do not wait until the last minute to sign up!

The half marathon is a two loop half, while the 7.5 mile course is a 1 lap version of the half marathon - same great course, sweatshirt and medal with a lot less work!

Parking

There will be tons of parking available right at the starting area, which is in the RV campground, please make sure you use the correct address as the starting line is not near the main entrance!

This is a state park so to enter the state park you will need either a State Park Passport (good at all parks all year) or pay for a one day entry upon arrival.  This money will be collected at the gate.
