Come join us for the 10th ANNUAL Mint Springs Trail 5K at Mint Springs Valley Park in beautiful Crozet, Virginia.  This is a family friendly event, but is also a challenging trail 5K course for runners of any experience level.  The course winds up Bucks Elbow Mountain, through beautiful single track trails with views of the valley below, and finally winds around the ponds before finishing by the playground above the lakes. This is a great event for top runners, families, and hikers alike!

All finishers receive a T-shirt and can say they've finished "The Toughest 5K in the Commonwealth!"  We will have awards for the top 3 finishers overall as well as top three in the following age groups, for both male and female: Kids 12-U, 13-17, 18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+.

This is also the first race in the 9th annual Charlottesville Summer Trail Running Series - CLICK HERE if you would like to instead register for the entire 4-race series for just $65 ($55 for CATS members) - that includes the registration and a shirt for this race, registration for the other 3 races, a technical fabric finishers shirt at the end of the series (if you finish at least 3 of the 4 races), plenty of prizes and awards, and a post-series BBQ!
