Powhatan, VA 8hrs, 8 Hours 4 Person Relay

Description

Ever wondered what trail running is like? The Piedmont 8 Hour is a great intro to Ultras and trail running. The 3.3 mile loop features approx 60 feet of elevation change each loop. The trail meanders through open meadows and forest, presenting an ever changing view. Running the second to last weekend of October also means that you will see spectacular leave coloring.

Runners will have access to food and aid every time they pass the start line. Awards will be given to the top three finishers for males and females. Every runners logging either a half marathon or 50k will also receive a prize.

Come out and hit the trails with us!

The aid station will offer prepackaged food only, like gummy candies and chips. We will have Water, Tailwind and some pop (that's right, I'm from the midwest). It is a cupless event so bring your own cup. Volunteers will hand you what you ask for as you come through. Runners using the aid station should wear a mask when passing the aid station.

This year, we are proud to partner with the Cafe at Maidens. They will be providing boxed lunches to interested runners after 12pm. Boxed lunches will include a scrumptious sandwich, chips, cookie and can of Pop. Because the cost of the race is so low these will be provided as an add on feature. Meaning if you want it you pay for it at registration. You may also order food for family/friends. This may be a good option because there is no real food for around a 20 minute drive. Order at checkout. Take a look at the menu here (https://www.thecafeatmaidens.com/menu)



Last day to register and be guaranteed a shirt is October 1st.

Because we want you on the trails we keep the cost of this race low. $55 for an 8 hour race with a shirt is a steal. Because of this we do not offer refunds. We do offer a discount for Law enforcement, fire, medical, education, military and veterans. Enter code "Thanks" for a discount
