The Zen Squirrel Trail Run is BACK! Offering 2 mile, 5 mile, and 10 mile distance options, this race brings together adventure seeking athletes for fun, challenge, and healthy competition. Athletes racing in-person on 5/15 at Briar Chapel in Chapel Hill, NC will be treated to some pretty darn awesome courses that include a mixture of smooth and flowing dirt trails, rock and root strewn single-track, and challenging hill climbs. In the virtual race, athletes run ANY or ALL of the distances, ANYWHERE, from 5/1-5/16.
Athletes signing up for BOTH the in-person race (any distance) AND the virtual race SAVE $15. One tee for both events. Pick up tee on race day.
We are planning the in-person race with COVID mitigating safety measures and staggered wave starts. We will start small groups of 10 socially distanced athletes every 10 minutes over 3 hours, from 7am-10am. Athletes will select their 'start wave' during registration.
If gathering size restrictions are eased before race day, we may increase the size of the waves or change to a standard 8am mass start. Prior to race day, if greater restrictions require us to postpone or cancel the in-person race, ALL REGISTERED IN-PERSON RACERS MAY SWITCH TO THE VIRTUAL EVENT OR CHOOSE BETWEEN A FULL REFUND OR A FULL CREDIT.
Adventures are more fun with friends so create a team and invite your friends to join you in this race, either in-person on virtually. Creating or joining a team is simple during or after registration. NOTE: This is not a relay so all team members will still be running their own race.
Invite friends to join in the fun. Every person who signs up using your unique referral link will help you earn the following rewards.
Your referral link will be included on your confirmation email and we will also send you a separate email that you can forward to your friends. Also, your referral link will be embedded in the social share buttons at the end of registration. Plenty of ways to invite your friends and earn rewards.
