It is getting a little harder.
The 3rd race in the Southeastern Trail Series is a little harder than the first two races. Not only have we increased the distance to 6 and 12 miles, we have added a climb to the top of Double Oak Mountain. The Memorial Day Trail Race will present runners with the first real climb or climbs, depending on whether you are running the 6 or 12 mile race. Runners will climb from Maggie's Glen on the white trail, up Shackleford Ridge, then across the ridge and up to Shackleford Point. This is the highest point in Oak Mountain State Park. You will then descend on the Yellow/White Connector to the start. The views off Shackleford Ridge are great, but the terrain is technical in places so you will need to pay attention to your footing. If you have run the first two races and kept up your training in between, you are ready. Course map and directions to the start are available on the Memorial Day Trail Race Website.
