This Richmond Road Runner Club 10-mile trail race starts and ends at Bear Creek Lake State Park in Cumberland, Virginia (about 45 minutes west of Richmond). The loop course passes through the Piedmont Hills of Cumberland State Forest and Bear Creek Lake State Park. Registration is capped at 300 runners.
Registration will open in September 2019.
The 10-mile (plus a little extra) loop course starts with five miles out primarily on the Willis River Trail before heading back on sections of the Cumberland Multi-use, Lost Barr Loop, Lakeside and other trails. The run is 98% trail and about 2% road. There are no significant elevation changes, but you will still get about 1,000 feet of vert. The trail crosses several creeks, has numerous short hills and includes some challenging sections with fallen trees across the path and roots and mud underfoot. This map provides a general overview of the loop course but it will be wise to follow the course markings on race day.
THIS IS A TRAIL RACE. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR SAFETY. BE ALERT FOR DOWNED TREES ACROSS THE COURSE, ROOTS, STONES, MUD, TREE LIMBS, STREAM CROSSINGS, WATER, ETC. WATCH FOR TRAFFIC AT THE FEW ROAD CROSSINGS. PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FELLOW RUNNERS AND COURSE MARSHALS.
