Description

The 15k trail run is a challenging mix of single track mountainous trail and unimproved dirt road. The course includes two long climbs and several sections of rolling ridge lines. There are rocks, roots and wet stuff. Your “dogs” will get dirty!

Course Changes

Due to continued maintenance on the American Electric Power right of way that passes through Kanawha State Forest race management will be exploring alterations to the traditional course AFTER the climb up White Hollow Trail. These changes will be made to maximize single track trail and reduce as much gravel road as possible.

Waves and Chip Timing

To reduce runner congestion on the first climb this race will start in two waves.  The first wave will start at 9:00AM and the second wave will start at 9:05AM.  The results will be chip timed to avoid any issues with runners starting in the wrong wave.  Wave assignment will be made after race registration closes.

Special Pricing

WVMTR members in good standing will recieve a $2.50 discount after the first 100 slots are claimed.

We will fill the parting lot closest to the the starting line first, then we will fill the campground overflow lot, and finally we will park on the road side. The forest road is well traveled so if you park on the shoulder you will need to be completely off the road.
