  • This is a "cupless" race.  Please bring your own hydration and nutrition. 
  • The course will be open for 1 hr and 15 mins.
  • We have added a virtual "CHALLENGE" event - if you can't make it to our in-person event, challenge yourself with our resolution run:  how many miles can you run on the first day of 2022?  Challenge yourself and others with our online progress board.
     ****This race benefits the Girls Cross Country team at Mt Hope HS.

Please note - part of the course is on an untreated bike path in Colt State Park. Depending on weather conditions, there may be uneven and slippery conditions, plan accordingly with yaktrax, snowshoes or careful footing.  See the course map for the exact route.  In the true "old school running" theme - the course is "you-get-what-you-get" and participants should sign up accepting these conditions.
