Course Description

P.C.T.R will be run on Pleasant Creek’s outer loop of the equestrian trail. The race will start near the beach parking lot, heading north to the trail.

All distances will run clockwise this year and will exit the trail at the same location you entered to return to the start / finish line for each loop. If your race distance is 1 lap, you will finish at the start/finish line at the end of lap 1. If your race distance is 2 or 3 laps, you will cross the turn around point where the race started, and return to the trail running your second / third laps in the same direction as your first lap.

The course consists primarily of dirt and grass trails with small water crossings possible. The course has rolling hills but has produced some fast times. Please no strollers or pets are allowed on the course.

All are welcome to the park and to stay for post race activities.

****In the rare chance that we’re unable to hold the event at all within that time frame, we’ll do the very best to provide as much of a refund as possible to participants that want one.
