Local time: 4:22 AM
Revolution Running is excited to be a part of the Monastery 8 mile, 5K, & 1.5 mile trail race again for the 10th year! This event is unlike any other race you'll go to.. ever! The race starts in front of the Monastery Visitor Center and then goes on the trails behind the Monastery (no one is allowed except for this race). You'll run past lakes filled with ducks and open fields with amazing views. After all the amazingness you'll run up repentance hill (a 1/4 mile challenging hill in the middle of the course). Then you'll run through more amazing trails and end up at the Visitor Center. The 8 mile race will continue behind the Monastery and you'll run amazing new trails in a canopy of trees!
All races will start at 8:30 am but feel free to go to mass before the race at 7:00 am. Awards for the 5K will be (male/ female) top 3 overall and top 3 overall masters, 10 & under, 11-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-69, 60-64, 65+. For the 8 mile race the top 3 men and women will get a prize and all other finishers will get a finishers medal. Race proceeds go to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit.
After the race take the family to visit and enjoy the Monastic Heritage Center which features a display of the history of monastism. You will also enjoy shopping in gift shop and Bonsai store as well as a stroll through the Bonsai garden. Spend some quiet time on the lakeside and peaceful grounds. Then take a stroll, hike, or bike ride along the scenic “hike and bike” trail that spread along the entire 30+ miles of the Arabia Mountain PATH hike/bike trail that begins at the Monastery.
