The Crowell Hilaka Trail Run is all about getting out and running in the woods and enjoying nature. The course consists of combination of primitive single track (including Ohio's Buckeye Trail), bridle trails, open fields, and camp roads. Note that since this is a trail run so you can expect to encounter mud, slippery rocks, foot-grabbing roots, minor water crossings, and other obstacles that we all love about the trails. Since the race is in mid October, the autumn colors will be out in full splendor!
The race takes place at the Richfield Heritage Preserve, formerly Crowell Hilaka. In addition to its natural beauty, the park is rich in history. It was home to the pioneer Oviatt family. Later it was home to inventor Jim Kirby whose work and creativity are apparent decades later. It is probably best known for its 75 years as a Girl Scout camp starting in 1937.
We will have water, gels, and some salty & sugary items.
We will be running the 6-mile loop two times for the Half Marathon and once for the 10k. After the last loop, you will run an out and back down the access road to the lower lake for about 1/2 mile, pick up an item out of the basket, then sprint back to the finish at Amity House
