Friday was the 3.8 mile Trail Run. The race was held in the afternoon which was different but fun. They shuttled us to the trail start from the race expo, which I thought was a great idea. I didn’t have to look up direction to the trail start and drive there, this also kept the parking lot pretty empty so we had room to stretch before the race.
Before the race started they had a few speakers from Altra who gave us tips about trail running in general and about this course. I thought this was really cool because for some runners this would be their first trail race, and running on the trails is a lot different than a road race.
I had a little insider knowledge about the trail and was told that the trail shrinks down to a single lane so we got up to the front of the pack before the race started so we wouldn’t get stuck farther back than we wanted.
The trail itself was clearly marked and well-traveled. There were the typical obstacles you would expect on a trail: loose rocks, roots, dirt and leaves which all added to the fun. There was a good balance of up and down hills and in most places plenty of room to pass runner if you needed. The downhill finish was very fun.
There was pizza, popcorn, and bottled water after the race.
100% recommend this fun trail race!
