Otter Creek Course
Otter Creek is a wonderful trail run. You can go 8,16, or 26.2 miles. It is a loop course on a singletrack trail. There are fully stocked aid stations every 4-5 miles. It has areas of pine needles, which are easy on the feet. You run along the creek, which has the nicest view. and some rolling hills to keep you entertained. There is something for everyone. This is a wonderful trail to do for you first marathon or your first trail run. The weather is hard to predict, maybe raining, snow, or sunshine. Come prepared. Being in December it is the perfect race before the holidays. It has always been my Christmas party and I love celebrating with all my trail friends!
For the after party we will have a chili cook-off. I love making my grandmother's chili, which brings great memories for me. For years after the race I made all the chili but as the race has grown I realized I needed help. We all have our favorite recipe for chili so the cook-off was born. There are 3 categories, vegan, chicken, and beef chili. There are prizes for the winning chili. If you want to enter the cook-off just send me a text, 502-220-3440. There is always lots of other snacks, beer, and great company!
Medals and Prizes
Each year the medals have been carved wooden medals . These are simply the best and it makes me happy to give them to you. Prizes will be given to the top 3 male and female in each race. Overall plaques are made by John King, Drunkwood. Long sleeve shirts will be given to everyone!

This year I am adding a new catagory. Each year Fleet Feet comes as a team and race. I am always excited to see them race and support each other. It is so much fun and in spirit of the holidays to race as a team. So this year the marathon will have a team catagory. There can be as many runners on a team, each run the whole marathon, then the top 3 times will be added together and the lowest time wins. Each runner will get an individual time as well. Team work is dream work.
