Latest Update from Governor’s Order on 12/10 & Executive Order – While the order still states waves can still be up to 25, we will have waves closer to 10.  More wave info will be sent on the night before the race.   Limited t-shirts will be available for those who register within 12 days of the race. We encourage participants to bring their own water.  “Masks are also required on NPS-managed lands when physical distancing cannot be maintained, including narrow or busy trails, overlooks and historic homes.”  There are a few sections of the trail in the race that could be fairly busy and very difficult to stay 6+ feet away from others. We understand no one wants to wear a mask when running, but please abide by this new ruling when you near other runners, bicyclists, and other members of the public.

Points count towards our Year-Long 5k, 10k, Kids, & Back of the Pack Series.  Points will also count towards our Spring Series.  Find more info about the series here.
