P.C.T.R will be run on Pleasant Creek’s outer loop of the equestrian trail (the loop is 15K in distance). The race will start near the playground park area north of the beach parking lot.
All distances will run clockwise this year and will exit the trail at the same location you enter to return to the start / finish line for each loop (i.e. you will return to the start to begin each subsequent loop).
The course consists primarily of dirt and grass trails with small water crossings possible. The course has rolling hills but has produced some fast times. Please, no strollers or pets are allowed on the course.
All are welcome to the park and to stay for post-race activities.
