This run is tough, wet, and wild. YOU WILL GET WET! You will run along flat fields next to the river, and through the river four times. Paths wind through mountain laurel, challenging HILLS, numerous switchbacks, singletracks, soft sand, alongside ponds, over roots and rocky spots. The entire loop is "run-able," but is totally acceptable to walk parts of the course. It is a great SUMMER COOL DOWN! Spectators can easily view various sections of the race and are encouraged to beat the first river crossing.
RACE DAY REGISTRATION AVAILABLE until 8:00a.m.
The race will be run rain or shine. There will be an alternate course if the river is deemed impassable by emergency management officials.
KIDS RUN is just before awards.
The awards presentation and door prizes will be held immediately following the run. Awards and door prizes will not be mailed.
