Come get your sugar rush at The Sugar Hollow Scramble. This is ONE SWEET RACE. Race starts at 8:30 AM and YOU decide how far you want to go. The course is a 5K loop, which consists of predominately single track trail and runs through several unique areas of Sugar Hollow Park. You will twist through an old hardwood forest on a single track, glide over the soft needles in a mature pine grove, gaze out over the park while crossing the earthen dam, and wander through the wetlands. If you like the loop, you can do it again, and again, and again until your 3 hours are up.
Come run a fun trail 5K or 30K….or somewhere in between.

Drive to the end of this road and you will come to the parking area for the soccer fields. Park here and walk down to the Registration Table for packet pick-up.
There will be two aid stations on the course.
The Start/Finish Aid Station (of every 5k loop) will be stocked with Sword Hydration, water, gels, pretzels, oranges and other various items.
The second Aid Station will be at 1.3 miles and again at 2 miles, and will be stocked with water and Sword Hydration. ***The section of the course is a loop, and the aid station is technically at 1.3 miles...however, it is at a “pinch point” and will basically be passed on either side so if you need water you can get it with a 75-100 foot course alteration at about mile 2.
There are bathrooms at the Start/Finish area....Flush Toilets, so a runner's luxury!!!!
3 Hour Time Limit
There is a 3 hour time limit. All completed 5K loops under the 3 hour cut off will count toward your distance total. You can start a loop any time prior to the cut off, but only completed loops will count.
All finishers will receive a finisher's award, race swag, and a delicious ice cream dessert.
