This may be our toughest trail race yet! The Race(s) will challenge runners on looped
courses up and over three mountain tops.
Rise to new heights at one of the best courses around.
The Course here at Morow Mountains State Park has a little bit of everything. From hard packed earth, to very rocky sections of trail. Be prepared to duck under low hanging limbs and jump downed trees on the trail. The trail is mostly single track and there are some sections of serious elevation gains
(This trail race takes place in January each year. Visit race website link below for details.)
