This year's run will be 8 miles. Probably.
We are simplifying this year. Nothing (too) crazy. Come on out and get in a nice 8 mile run. That is two 4 mile loops -- you'll be glad you did the second, but thankful there isn't a third. Every year we have a lot of fun out here... this is one of the best trails in Leavenworth with the widest variety of terrain and obstacles.
I try to keep this race fresh... it changes a lot every year. You never know what's gonna happen out at Havens.
Check out the website for this year's fresh take, and maybe to find some clues for the quiz!
The course is different this year than the past couple. Eliminated lots of pavement so its mostly trail. Just a bit of asphalt at the beginning and end of your 4(+) mile loop.
You can drop at 4 miles and still get a shirt and a finish time, for an unofficial 4 mile run. But the 8 mile is where it's at, and will earn you a finisher award.
This year we will not start in the parking lot. We will park in the parking lot, and get your warm-up walking to the entrance of the park. New restrooms have been constructed here so we're able to keep the price even lower since we aren't renting porta-potties!
Really looking forward to seeing you out there to check out these trails, which are always changing too! Life is like a box of chocolates!
We are also pleased to announce we are partnering with 11Worth Station BrewHouse who will be providing a specially produced exclusive beer for the race!
