Wood Splitter Solstice

UPDATE: This event has converted to being 100% virtual for 2022.

“Take a Sunday drive in the country; on your feet; on a Saturday”

Welcome to the Wood Splitter Solstice Series! Throughout June, put your body, mind, and spirit to the test, and run as many miles as possible in a single push, from Sunrise to Sunset (As few or as many hours you prefer, up to 15 hours). Take on the challenge, and welcome in the Summer season.

The event will be on your terms, your time, and through your self paced and supported level of determination.

The event is designed to allow each athlete to run as much as possible, from sunrise to sunset (or up to 15 hours). With that, you can choose to run half the day or the entire day, depending on your personal goals.

For the top runners there will be overall prizes for the top 3 men and women (A calculation between distance and vertical gain will be utilized).

Fundraise: The event will be raising funds for the For Those Who Would non-profit organization. If you are looking for an event to put your fundraising skills into action, this would be a great one!

This race is put on and supported by you the athletes. Just you the trail/road and the community of free running spirits. Whether it is your first attempt at 3 miles, 31 miles, or you just love running in for hours on end, this event is designed to give you the environment to push your self and your personal boundaries.
