This event has passed.

Latest Update from Governor’s Order on 11/13 – This event is an in-person race and all waves will be under a 25-person limit.  There are specific check-ins for each race.  Runners items (finisher medal, shirt, race bib) will all be packed in a ziplock bag with your name on it. The next group’s bags won’t be placed on the table until the previous group has started the race.  Ex. For 10kers, your items will be set along the table after the half has started (9:00am).  For anyone who registered after the guaranteed t-shirt cutoff date, t-shirts are first come, first serve based on when you registered for the race.  The shirts will be placed in the bags.  If you registered late and we don’t have a shirt in your size and it’s not in your bag, any leftover shirts (or runners’ shirts who don’t show) will be placed at the finish line to pick up.  We encourage participants to bring their own water. Masks are expected during check-in, but are not expected during the actual race.  We do recommend keeping them on you and make sure to maintain 6ft of social distancing whenever possible.

No On-Site Registration.  Online registration closes at 7:59pm on Friday Night.

Points count towards 5k, 10k, Endurance & Back of the Pack Series. Points will also count towards our Blue Ridge Series. Find more info about the series here.
