Description: Are You Ready for the 2016 Redbud Trail Challenge? Join us for what we think is the “Most Rugged and Beautiful Trail Race in Ohio”. The Redbud Trail Challenge is a grueling Trail Hike/Run to benefit Ohio Wilderness Boys Camp (OWBC). Bring the whole family to participate and choose between a 5K, 10K, or 20K trail course. It will be run on OWBC’s rugged 600 acre forested property located in the hills of Southeast Ohio. The Redbud Trail Challenge will do just that: Challenge your will, mind, and body just to finish this course. But it will be worth every bit of energy and will-power you spend. The trail will go through 2 primitive campsites (the 5K will go through 1 campsite) which the boys built and where they reside. A few more unique features are crossing the 68′ span “Nehemiah” suspension bridge, the beautiful springtime forest lush with Redbud and Dogwood blossoms, and huge boulders alongside the trail. There will be 3 refreshment/first aid stations (only 1 on the 5K trail) spread out over the course of the trail. The 10K trail is strenuous and has over 1,700′ of elevation gain and is approximately 40% technical single track and 60% old logging trails. The 20K trail will be twice around the 10K course and is not for the faint of heart. It is a perfect “training” run for the ultra runner or marathoner. The 5K is a bit less rugged for those who want the fun of hiking in the woods, but not the difficulty and length of the 10K and 20K. All participants who register on or before April 16, 2016 will receive a T-shirt. After the event, hang around with your family and friends while enjoying a scrumptious meal for the whole family. All proceeds from the race will support the mission of Ohio Wilderness Boys Camp, a nonprofit organization helping troubled boys and their families find new hope. Register today and help us help boys. See you on the trail. Take $10 off registration if you register by February 15 using promo code save10redbud
