Drink- Run- Repeat. Got your attention?

We will be hosting this race at Brier Patch Hunting Club just north of Poplar Grove Plantation on US 17.  Participants and spectators will get to enjoy  the natural atmosphere of Southeastern Coastal NC.
You must be 21 or older to participate in the beer portion of the race.  You do not have to drink beer to participate, beer is simply another element to the race and is optional.  

RACE COURSE

The race course is on Breyer Patch Hunting Club property just north of Poplar Grove Plantation.  Trail shoes recommended.  The course is a very natural wooded terrain surrounded by swamp.  Footing is variable.  Runners will run a loop and then an out and back.  You should expect bugs during the race.  We have sprayed and fogged the field but not the course itself.  The race is called Copperhead due to running in the woods in August.  There is a chance that you could see a snake.  If you do, please stay away from it and alert us. There is also a walking bridge that you will have to cross.  Take caution and go slow.
