Event Info

The Triple Trail Challenge consists of 3 different dirt trails totaling 30.6 miles and 2,515 feet of climbing at Pocahontas State Park (11 Miles), Leakes Mill Park (9.3) and the James River Park (10.3).

The Triple Trail Challenge is a cross between a relay event and an ultra event. You can walk, hike, or run each of the trail segments. Each loop will be chip timed. Your time starts as you cross the timing mat for your first loop and pauses when you complete the loop. Your final result is your combined time from all three loops. You can do it over the weekend or all in one day. It is up to you.


Start – Anytime between January 21-23 (Courses open 7:00 AM Friday, January 21)
End – As soon as you cross the finish line of your last loop (by 5:00 PM on Sunday, January 23)
