With a mildly rolling course hugging Cottonwood Lake and then Coyote Creek, this race was made for first-timers and those looking to break through with a new personal record! Come join us on this late winter morning and enjoy this picturesque, family friendly park and trail!
All distances are on paved bike paths and start at Hellyer County Park then continue out Coyote Creek Parkway.
Walkers/hikers and runners of all levels are welcome!
All finishers will receive custom finisher medals and custom shirts (cotton and tech shirts available). More info on shirts/awards page.
Age group awards will be awarded to the top 3 finishers in 5 year categories (less for the younger ages).
Start times will be: 8:30 am for the half marathon, 8:50 am for the 10K and 9:10 am for the 5K.
For half marathon participants who wish to hike the course and take more than 4 hours, we will offer a "Hiker Start" at 8:00 am. Those starting at 8:00 should carry water as the first and second aid stations might not be 100% up and running, depending on the hikers speed. Hiker starts will not be eligible to win the race or for age group awards, but will be listed as official finishers in the Hikers Division and will still receive finisher medals.
All races will be professionally timed.
Note: We will have many extra shirts at the race, but because we have to print our shirts well ahead of race day, we can only 100% positively guarantee requested shirt sizes to those who sign up by 2/7.
Parking fee for those using the Hellyer County Park lot is $6.00.
