A challenging (but fun) beginning trail run for the novice and expert, alike.
The 5K is a good beginner trail run.
This year (due to the recent rain, etc) the race will be on bridle trails and grass. The 10K will be two loops of the 5K.
A great family-friendly run, but also fun for serious competitors.
New for this year:
1st, 2nd, 3rd Pl awards for 5K & 10K,

How was this race named?
Nine years ago, after several cougar sightings, we had an impromptu contest to name the Wyco Cougar. Bad Ben's son, Matt quickly came up with the winning name, based on the movie, The Graduate. (He can also do a great Dustin Hoffman impression, by the way).
