Course and Terrain 

A lot of road runners  come to this race having never run trails before. This is okay!  The course is a mix of single track trail, technical trail, and wide open dirt road. We HIGHLY recommend trail shoes!

Required Gear

You MUST have a headlamp to participate. No Exceptions! A flashlight is not acceptable! Get a headlamp with at least 150 lumens and new or freshly charged batteries before the start. If you think you will be near cutoff,  bring an extra set of batteries.

Sunset is at 6:30 P.M.  The races start separately and runners take off into the night with their lights. Its ALL fun and games through the woods on the easy trails to the finish. Everyone is encouraged to dress up! Best costume wins a prize!

We will have a water/gatorade aid station for the 10 mile ONLY! No aid for the 5 mile, so bring what you need to hydrate and fuel.

The course will be flat and rolling hills entirely in the dark.
