2021 is mixing things up a bit, so this event will offer both an in-person race and a week-long challenge registration option. The courses are the same, but the challenge option allows for runners to race any day of the week creating less foot traffic on the course. Both options require runners to be self-sufficient, meaning there will be no water stations along the course.
COVID-19 safety precautions will be in place to protect runners and the trail running community. Read the Race Safety Plan approved by ADH to learn more.
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 technical singletrack trail running, a welcome break for many from traditional pavement trails and the views are worth every step of the course whether it’s your first trail run or you are a seasoned pro.
Either option requires a $30 entry fee - but includes custom socks and finisher medals! $5 mailing fee - have your packet sent to you. To register for the race, sign up at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/recreation.
