Packet pickup and race day registration will be 8 a.m.-9:15 a.m. Shuttles to starting area will cease at 9:45 a.m. PLEASE NOTE: Parking will be off-site and shuttles will run until 15 minutes prior to race start. After race begins, Elachee Drive will be closed for the duration of the event.
This race is a great single and double track off-road running experience. Runners will start on the nature center parking lot and road (required for spacing), but will soon find themselves immersed with large trees, creeks, and everything else found in the woods. The terrain is made up of a little bit of everything; rolling hills, single track, double track, roots, rocks, bridges, along with some technical sections (tight and twisty). We will have water and Gatorade for 10k and ½ marathon runners. The course is beautiful and offers something for every runner truly wishing to escape to the outdoors.
Elachee will be handing out medals and prizes to our overall top 3 male and female finishers for each race. We will also be handing out medals to our top 3 male and female finishers, as well as in the masters and grandmaster categories. You must be present to receive your medal – we will not mail them to you.
