Moonlight Rendezvous - Race #2 of the Slope Series
This 5+ mile race sends you to the Massanutten Ski Slope Overlook by way of runnable single track, gaining over 1000 feet in just under 4 miles. From the Overlook, you will bomb down the gravel fire road back to the start/finish location.
This race takes place on the full moon, so head lamps and flashlights are required. The course will be marked with reflective taped streamers.
8:30 PM Start. Finish line will be booming and "well-lit".
Shirley's Popcorn Kids' Mile
This 1 mile trail race for children ages 12 and under will start at 6:30 on the gravel and proceed on the green loop single track trail. Course marshals will oversee their safe crossing of a creek (that the kids will love!) and then children will proceed on single track, turning right (another course marshal here) until they cross the gravel road, running up a brief grassy hill and turning onto the final section of single track for an epic finish on the bike switchbacks! It will be a blast and sure to provide just enough challenge!
Local time: 7:28 AM
Parents are welcome to run alongside their child or position themselves on the gravel to cheer them on as they finish.
All mile finishers will receive a bag of Shirley's Popcorn and a book of their choosing (from selection provided).
