You will be in awe of the beauty of this course and venue. You'll run a ~3 mile trail loop continuously for 6 or 12 hours passing by a spectacular waterfall, mountain creeks and a run through the vintage event barn every lap. Each loop boasts 400+ feet of elevation gain, it's a good thing this course is so beautiful to distract you from the challenges of the ups and downs of this impressive single-track!

The timed race format has many desirable advantages. You don't have to commit to finish a specific distance, all levels welcome. To receive a finishers gift you must start the race and run/hike at least one loop! It's also an ideal format to see what you can do in 6 hours and 12 hours! You don't know exactly how long you'll be out there so it's great for race strategizing. The loop format gives you many opportunities to see other runners and run past the aid station often. You won't have to carry a ton of gear, fuel or hydration since you'll never be too far away. The 5k course is one loop. 

The race course and venue are all on private property and is reserved for us race weekend. The property is incredibly beautiful and perfect for a gathering, such as an ultra running event. 

Camping and onsite lodging available through Wag Valley Farm 

*If you plan to come just for the day, that's no problem. You can pick up your packet that morning or afternoon before your race starts.
