Whiskey Tango Foxtrot Trail Half Marathon

Sun February 28, 2021 Gibsonville, NC 27249 US Directions RaceJoy Ready
Description

This two loop course shows off some of the great trails - including Foxtrot Trail - at Northeast Park. The course has two river crossings ranging from 6 inches deep if there has been very little rain to 2.5 feet deep with a lot of rain (anything over that height and we have an alternate course). At the finish, we will have some great beer and an awesome finishers medal to show off when people ask you "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot were you thinking racing a trail half marathon that crosses a creek at the end of February?!"

This race is race number one in the Trivium Medal Series - complete all the races in the series to earn one giant mega medal! 

IMPORTANT MESSAGE REGARDING COVID-19 (NOVEL CORONAVIRUS)

We will be working closely with the city to implement all necessary Covid measures to have a safe in-person event. Modifications may include removal of post race activities, wave starts, and modified courses. We cannot predict what February will look like in terms of the current pandemic, but we are committed to doing everything we can to host a live event. Please make sure you are aware of our refund policy prior to signing up. We hope to see everyone in February!

January 20, 2021 Update: Right now it looks as if the race will start in waves about 10-15 minutes apart. The current recommendation for wave size is 40 people, but we know that by race day it could be anywhere between 40 and 100, depending on local viral load at that point. So we will not open wave selection until 2 weeks before race day. We will send out an email when we do so. 

Here are a couple of other COVID rules that will be in place for race day:

  • Contactless packet pick up and aid stations on the course
  • No spectators on race day (the exception will be a parent of a minor child who is racing)
  • Face masks required at all times when not racing
  • Wash hands frequently and keep a distance of 6ft or more between yourself and others
