Otter Creek Course
Otter Creek is a wonderful trail run. you can go 8,16, or 26.2 miles. It is a 3 loop course on a single track trail. There are fully stocked aid stations every 4-5 miles. It has areas of pine needles, which are easy on the feet. You run along the creek, which is the nicest view. and it has some rolling hills to keep you entertained. There is something for everyone. This is a wonderful trail to do for you first marathon or your first trail run. The weather is hard to predict, maybe raining, snow, or sunshine. Come prepared. Being in December it is the perfect race before the holidays.
Over the years Otter Creek has been famous for the chili that is served. Last year I added a new event, the Otter Chili Cook- off. This will be the second year. There will be red, white, and vegan chili.
Aprons given to all that enter as well as trophies and prizes for the best in each category. If you are interested in bringing chili just make a pot (Bring it in a crockpot) and let me know. We will be glad to sample your yummy chili!
Medals and Prizes
Each year are medals have been carved wooden medals made by a local high school. These are simply the best and it makes me happy to give them to you. The prizes are donated by Ken Combs Running Store and go 3 deep in each race. We often give other swag that has been donated. The shirts are the best. Last year they were long sleeve cotton hoodies, the year before, thermal distressed, always something nice.
