Local time: 7:37 AM
The Lost Forester Adventure Run is designed to be challenging. It will take over twice as long as a street run of the same distance. It is between 8 and 10 miles on trail and off-trail up and down the steepest hills, through swamps, creeks, and dense woods in Pine Valley and surrounding area in search of the Lost Forester. The route is an off-trail ribbon line until the runners find the Lost Forester, who will provide a map and directions to return to the finish. The runners will choose their own way back to the finish. Runners will be self-supporting the whole distance, bring their own water, gels, and compass. For safety a compass is required for all participants. Long sleeve shirts, pants, and sturdy shoes are highly recommended.
The Pine Valley Blue House - Its only a hill - runs are two trail races, a 5.5K and an 11K over the ski trail that runs through Pine Valley’s scenic pines and hardwoods. The 5.5K run is one loop of the Pine Valley ski tails while the 11K is two loops but in opposite directions.
After the races stay and enjoy a Lost Forester breakfast of flapjacks.
