The trail is in good shape and the weather is looking to be sunny skies and warm temps! The 5K course has about 600 feet of climbing which occurs in the first mile, then it is downhill and flat. The long course, well is long. Just ran it today and it turns out to be 8.9 miles. A great training run and prep work for the Escape from Prison Hill Half Marathon. We will be collecting old shoes again this Saturday for Bread of Life Mountain Ministries. They don't have to be running shoes just any old shoe. Remember that for event day registration there is a $5 procrastination fee. There is a limited supply of shirt sizes left over. If you are a first time runner in this series and we don't have a shirt in your size left, don't worry we will be ordering more on Monday morning after this run to make sure everyone gets one. Thanks for your patience. See you Saturday.

No awards. Just the sweet satisfaction that you overcame the urge to sleep in on a cold winter morning and to go out and burn off some calories that were feeling way to at home.
First time runners in this series can pick up their bib #'s and shirts at check in the morning of the run. All runners, including returning series runners, must check in prior to the start of the run. This is to ensure that we have an accurate head count to who is out there. Thank you.
