The event was a 5k, 10k, half marathon and 25k.  There is a distance for everyone!  Our 5k and 10k trails are not very technical and are a great introduction into trail running.  The half marathon and 25k course is more technical and will be an exciting challenge for all!

Our aid stations will be stocked with both water and Gatorade. Our 5k event will have one aid station, the 10k event will have two aid stations and the half marathon and 25k events will have three awesome aid stations!
