We are so excited to have you at the inaugural Lake Of The Woods 5k & 50K!
The race will begin at 8am on Saturday February 19th, located at the Lake Of The Woods Camp Grounds (3939 Swartzel Rd Farmersville, Ohio 45325).
Runners will line up outside of the clubhouse/main aid station area near the lake, and take off on a 5k looped course. Runners participating in the 5k will stop after one loop and runners participating in the 50k will go out for 10 loops. An award ceremony for each running event will be held as the majority of runners finish their respective races.
The course loops through the woods and around the lake. The trails are wide and very passable. The course does feature some hills and a creek crossing (Not deep). Map and course video coming soon.
The campground features a clubhouse as our ‘warm up room’ and an outdoor shelter that will serve as the main aid station. Other race features include a large bonfire area for outdoor warm ups, 2 on course aid stations, and vegetable soup served all day at the main aid station.
