T-Shirt & Course

T-Shirt: – More info coming…See Pictures for Wintertime Series, Spring, Summer, and Fall will be similar.

There will be a t-shirt for every seasonal race and a finishers shirt if you complete all three races in a season. So if you run two races in a season you get one shirt and some other swag that we are working on right now. Something unique to the season. Hats, gloves, or scarves are what we are thinking about for the first three races in 2023.

There will also be a unique shirt for anyone participating in the annual challenge and finishing the annual challenge.

Course:

This is probably my favorite part of this entire experience. The course will be different for each race. Some of the changes will be slight, some will be intense. It is both a crushed limestone/gravel trail as well as grassy meadow trail. You will run in dirt, rocky, root filled, trails as well. They would be wet, snowy, dry, slick, an adventure awaits. It will be a hilly and challenging course. Do not expect to set your 5K PR but you might set your 5K “trail” PR.

Parking and Packet Pickup

Packet Pickup:

Coming Soon…

Race Day Packet Pickup at the race location, starting 1 hour prior to your event.

Medals and Swag

There is a finisher medal for anyone who runs just one or two of the 5Ks or one of the 1 Mile races. You can see that medal via the pictures. It is a fairly straightforward medal with my logo and club name.

The second medal is if you compete in one of the series. YOU HAVE TO SIGN UP TO COMPETE IN ONE OF THE SERIES IN ORDER TO WIN THIS MEDAL.

This medal is much larger and fancier and comes with the ability to win four separate Free-Tail Bat magnetic inserts that will attach to the much larger medal. If you complete the Wintertime Series you will get the big medal, plus the icy cool blue bat insert.

Complete the Springtime Series then you add the Green Bat
Complete the Summer Series then you add the Red Bat
Complete the Fall Series then you add the Yellow Bat

There is also seasonal specific swag.

Wintertime Series - You will also get a gloves and a scarf.
