Woodlands Running Co. has hosted a weekly Tuesday night group run up at Prescott Park rain, snow, or shine, for almost three years. We can’t think of a better way to pay homage to our favorite Medford mountain than to host a race that takes runners to the summit 3 times using 3 different trails and uses a unique race format. The race course includes a little over 8 miles of total distance and 2000 ft of climbing. Let's get ready to rumble!
Start/Finish Area: The uppermost Roxy Ann Road parking lot will serve as the official start/finish line area.
Race Course: From the Start/Finish line you will summit Roxy Ann three times using three different trails: Ponderosa Trail, Manzanita Trail, and the Park Tower Road. Once you reach the top of each leg, you will receive a colored sticker from a volunteer to be placed on your race bib. Volunteers will be located at the top of each trail to distribute stickers and provide directions. You will ALWAYS descend back down Park Tower Road, hang a LEFT at the bottom of the road, and proceed COUNTER-CLOCKWISE back to the Start/Finish line area. You'll cross the Start/Finish line, do a u-turn around a cone and head back up for your next summit.

Course Markings: All the trails will be well marked with flags and volunteers will be on course to provide directions.
Awards/Prizes: Awards will be given to the top male and female finishers along with a free entry into our Twin Peaks Trail Runs this fall.
Event's current local time: 10:02 PM PT
Aid Stations: A water-only aid station will be available at the start/finish line.
