Join us for Hobby Trails to You! 5K & 10K Trail Races.
The cross country start (a line of anxious runners toeing the start-line) very quickly funnels into a 5K and 10K single track race. This is painstakingly accurate for distance. Don’t go by your GPS watch. In fact, don't ever go by your GPS on a trail! There’s ample parking, food, drink, music, shade, occasional snakes and poison ivy. But don't worry about the snakes, ivy or spider webs unless you're the front-runners!
Friday, August 16 from 5PM to 7PM at JDL Fast Track (2505 Empire Drive, W-S). Sorry, no race day registration, so get on it! This is the last chance to register for the race. We'll even buy legal age and older beer-drinking trail folks a beer at Foothills Brewing Tasting Room (3800 Kimwell Drive-a few meters up the road from JDL) for your pre-race, carbo-loading pleasure! You'll get a coupon when you pick up your packet and prove your age.
Pricing at Packet Pickup
