Pine Mountain is for Lovers
We are super excited to have an amazing half marathon and 5K on the beautiful Pine Mountain Trail! Come run this scenic and tough (2300 feet of gain) half marathon the day after Valentine's Day! We promise a fun morning with rolling hills and beautiful single track trails. This race is 100% trail (except for the pavement of crossing over roads) and promises to challenge every runner. This race falls a great time of year if you are getting ready for a late February or early March marathon.
Local time: 5:47 AM
Pine Mountain 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 trail with your friends! 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. There will be one full stocked aid station around mile 6 of the ½ marathon.
All half marathon finishers will receive a beautiful medal. All race participants will receive a pint glass! In the 5k top 3 male/female age group winners will receive medals. There will also be awards for first place overall male/female in the half marathon and first place overall male/female and masters male/female in the 5k. Age groups for the 5k will be 0-10,11-19,20-29,30-39,40-49,50-59,60-69, and 70+ Male and Female.
All runners will receive a long sleeve t-shirt if registered by the deadline.
***T-shirt Deadline Feb 1st***
