Race Format

The 100M & 50M events consist primarily of short “everesting” loops up the Cannonsburg Quad and down the Double ski runs. Runners will also run additional ~2 mile loops through the trail system to break up the everesting loops and spread runners out. When you choose to to run the ~2 mile loops is entirely up to you.

Sunset 10K. This 10K will take you on a tour of other trails on the Cannonsburg property and a trip to the top of the main hill.

Sunrise 20K. This race is SUNDAY MORNING and will complete 2 laps of the 10K course on single track and the ski hill.
