Race start and finish is at Kessler Mountain Regional Park, a 620-acre area in southwest Fayetteville that makes up one of the region’s most stunning nature preserves with pristine forest, open meadows and even scenic bluffs. The course features singletrack trail running, a welcome break for many from traditional pavement trails. And—once runners complete the race, tasty hot soup will be waiting to refuel everyone!
The entry fee is $30 and includes finisher medals and custom socks. The 15K race is open for runners age 12 and older; athletes of all ages are welcome to participate in the 5K race. Prizes will be awarded to the overall top three male and female finishers, as well as the top male and female finishers for each age group.
