Due to COVID-19, we have temporarily closed registration for all 2020 races until we know for certain that the events will actually happen. Racers wishing to express their intent to register and to save their spot in any race (without paying or entering any CC info), may join the waitlist for that particular event. We will notify those on the waitlist when the 'go/no-go' decision has been made, which will be AT LEAST three weeks before each event. If the event is a ‘go’, those on the waitlist may complete their registration, if they choose. Please contact Race Director of Roadless Races, Jim Harman, with any questions – email@example.com or 571-251-6034.
Held on some of the best trail networks in Chapel Hill, NC, the Zen Squirrel is a three-race trail running series that brings together adventure seeking athletes for fun, challenge, and healthy competition. Athletes choose to run in the 5 or 10 mile competitive events or in the 2-mile, untimed, fun run. All scenic, forest covered courses are pretty darn awesome and include a mixture of smooth and flowing dirt trails, rock and root strewn single-track, and challenging hill climbs.
After each race, athletes gather for fun post-race festivities which include tasty food, great music, free kids ‘Race for Treasure’, and a fun awards ceremony (with many giveaways).
Race in one, two, or all three races of the Zen Squirrel. After each race, awards will be presented to the top five overall and the top three age group finishers of the 5 and 10 mile events. Additionally, a point system adding athletes’ points earned at each race will be used to determine the top five series finishers in each age group. Series prizes and awards will be presented at the final race of the series. Racers must compete in at least two races of the same distance (5 mile or 10 mile) to be eligible for series awards.
