race info and FAQ
This is not your typical road race or trail run! The entire race will be off-pavement, and will wind through a combination of farmland and beautiful woods. The course consists of a nice combination of flats and hills.
All paid registrants will receive a super-soft race t-shirt on race day. We will do our best to have enough shirts on hand for race-day registrants. If t-shirts run out, some race-day registrants may have to pick up t-shirts or have them mailed.
Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place overall male and female as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place male and female in the following age groups: 10 and under, 11-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+
There is ample parking on site.
The race will be manually timed.
