Huff N' Puff Race Info
Revolution Running is excited to start 2021 off right with the Huff N Puff 1/2 Marathon & 5K trail race!
Water and snacks will be available on the course at the 1.5 mile mark for both races and also at the 8 mile & 11.5 mile for the 1/2 marathon. This is a trail race and will take most runners over 2 hours to complete the 1/2 so we recommend you carry a water bottle and any additional fuel you may need.
Dauset Trails is a beautiful nature area and offers a little something for everyone who wishes to get off the road and enjoy the woods. The 1/2 course is made of mostly single track trail, rolling hills, roots, rocks, and some technical sections. Enjoy the morning twisting along the trails, running beside creeks, and maybe even spotting a few deer or a family of raccoons! Post race we will have a DJ, Beer, and the best post race atmosphere.
*********Must register by January 6th to be guaranteed a 3/4 zip *********
This year instead of the hoodie we are going to do a long sleeve 3/4 zip in women's and men's sizing! ***All participants who register by January 6th will be guaranteed a 3/4 zip*** All runners will also receive a pint cup that can be used for a post run beer! In addition ALL half marathon and 5k finishers will receive a beautiful medal. 1st place overall male/female awards and 1st place master male/female awards will be given in both the 5k and 1/2.
Proceeds of this race will benefit Dauset Trails! Check out their website here - http://www.dausettrails.com/
