After a one year hiatus, Twisted Trail 10k is back!
Come run on the New London Tech Trails for the 2nd annual Twisted Trail 10k. Stay afterward for age group awards, food, and a raffle with prizes from several area businesses.
We have a great location lined up - nice trail system - and gracious hosts with the Bedford County Parks and Recreation.
Come run one of Bedford County's newest and nicest trail systems.
New for 2021!!
We will have both male and female shirt sizes, instead of unisex sizing. Make sure you take this into account when you register.
We are VERY excited to host the 2021 Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Virginia State Cross Country Championship!
Especially exciting is showing the state of Virginia our "neck of the woods" here in Forest, a great community in Bedford County.
RRCA State Championship Awards will be given to:
Top 3 open finishers of each gender
Top Master's runner (age 40+)
Grand Master's runner (age 50+)
Senior Grand Master's runner (60+)
The course will run all three of the loops at the New London Technical Trails: Orange, Blue, and Green.
Turns will be marked with streamers and there will be course marshals at tricky points.
The trails are well-used, feature minimal trip hazards, and are still relatively new as they were completed less than 4 years ago.
There will be at least one, but maybe two water stops along the course.
