Galax Xtreme Fitness will be hosting this event in partnership with Masterpiece fitness and plans to donate all proceeds to GOD’s Storehouse soup kitchens, Matthews State Forest and our local mountain biking community. Matthews State Forest Trail Run is for the “purist.” These are the runners who run for the experience and their own performance without emphasis on t-shirt or trophies. If you want to go for a time, we will have a starting time for all runners to set their devices. This doesn’t mean the elite runners do not participate. They do! But this race is for all runners who want to enjoy the outdoors and get a physically challenging work out. We encourage everyone to bring a thermos and any munchies desired, and stick around to cheer the last runners in. We will mingle and enjoy each other’s stories of present and past races. We will have a donation bucket for Matthews State Forest and the Galax Mountain Bikers who are responsible for the trail we all enjoy.
