Weather & Cutoffs
These are low-traffic trails, so we expect this race to go off rain or shine. In the event of severe weather (highly unlikely in December) we will delay the start as necessary to avoid lightening. If severe weather threats the entire day and does not appear to let up, we may be forced to cancel. However this is not typical for this area during this time of year.
Average temperatures: Low 60F, High 82F
The cutoff for the 5 Mile is 2 hours. This works out to be 24:08 min/mi pace. The 10 Mile cutoff is 3hr15min or 17:00 min/mi pace. If you cannot maintain 17min pace we ask that you please consider running the 5 Mile.
There are no refunds, deferrals, credits or friend / family transfers on entries. We do not mail shirts or medals to participants unable to make the event as left over shirts are donated.
The Joe Wheeler State Park Lodge is the best place to stay for the race. The start and finish lines will be within a short walking distance of the Lodge (0.5 miles.) The rooms are only $80/night and be sure to tell them you are visiting the park to run the Running Buck Wild Trail Run!
