The 10 Mile Trail Run course encompasses a little something for everyone. The first four miles are truly a woodsman delight as the course takes the runner through deep woods and game trails. The end of the fourth mile culminates in the arrival of the river trail and the first hydration station. The river trail is both fast and flat. The river trail will exit to the second hydration and aid station. The final 3.5 miles is primarily flat with only one challenging hill to traverse. Once uphill, breathtaking scenery awaits the runner as the trail overlooks the valley portion of Barboursville Park. There is one remaining hydration station at mile 8.5. The last eight tenths of a mile is downhill. The course of the 4 Mile Trail Run will be the first 4 miles of the 10 mile trail run. As a warning to prospective runners, the first eight tenths of a mile is uphill and can prove challenging but rewarding. There is no hydration station on the 4 mile course.
Awards will be given to the Top 3 Male and Female finishers of both races. All other pre-registered runners will be entered into a raffle for one of our numerous door prizes. There will not be an “Awards Ceremony”. Awards will be handed out shortly after runners cross the finish line. There are no age group awards, but age group places will be found on results sheets at the shelter.
Runners will receive a race shirt. **Entries must be sent before May 20th to guarantee a size** Shirts are a very soft tri-blend, unisex sizing, XS-XXL. If you are between sizes, we suggest sizing up.
