Description

Seize the Day and Seize the Night with one of Trivium's favorite events! This unique, fun, and challenging event is headed into its second year with a few changes. We love working with Proud Lake State Recreation Area so much that we will be hosting this event, in the spring, on their gorgeous trails. These trails are significantly flatter, a bit wider, and have less roots than the 2018 course, making the event more enjoyable for those newer to trail running - and running in the dark!

The event will again offer both a long (Half Marathon) and short (10K ) option in the morning and evening. The morning race will be completely in daylight and the evening option will start before dark, but many people will finish after the sun has gone down!

We will have both a day medal, and a night medal. If you do both events your two medals will connect to make one big medal!!

10K Course

Our 10K course is very similar to the Half marathon course, but only one lap and you will turn off early on the far side of the course.  These trails are very smooth and well groomed, perfect for a flying fast time!

Half Marathon Course

Our Half Marathon course is the reverse of our Black Toenail Friday Course.  These is an awesome fun course, and will be even more fun in the dark!  If you did Carpe last year, these will trails have less hills, and are extremely well groomed!
