T-Shirt: – More info coming…

There will be a t-shirt for every seasonal race and a finishers shirt if you complete all three races in a season. So if you run two races in a season you get one shirt and some other swag that we are working on right now. Something unique to the season. Hats, gloves, or scarves are what we are thinking about for the first three races in 2023.

There will also be a unique shirt for anyone participating in the annual challenge and finishing the annual challenge.

Course:

This is probably my favorite part of this entire experience. The course will be different for each race. Some of the changes will be slight, some will be intense. It is both a crushed limestone/gravel trail as well as grassy meadow trail. You will run in dirt, rocky, root filled, trails as well. They would be wet, snowy, dry, slick, an adventure awaits. For the first race, I do have a course in mind. I will be sharing that before December, 2022. It will be a hilly and challenging course. Do not expect to set your 5K PR but you might set your 5K “trail” PR.

Here is a link to the trail that will be used for the first race:
