Sanctioned: This event will be sanctioned and insured through the USATF.  However, the course distances are not certified.

Trail Info and Map:

Tentative maps for each race distance –  SUBJECT TO CHANGE!

The trails are mostly single track and surprisingly hilly.  While not highly technical, there are some rocks, roots, and lots of knobby stobs.

There will be flagging and big arrows marking the course.  There will be flagging tape across trails that you should NOT take. Do not go under any tape blocking trails or over logs blocking trails – that is the wrong way!

Aid Stations:

Will be CUPLESS!  You will need to provide your own bottle or cup or hydration pouch!

  • Half marathon – 2 aid stations
  • 5.5 mile – 1 aid station
  • 5k – 1 aid station

We will have water, Gatorade, a variety of cookies, pretzels, Pringles, bananas, M&Ms, and gummy bears at aid stations.

Packet Pick Up: Race day only, beginning at 8:00 a.m. near start line.

Awards & Finishers Prizes:

All participants of all distances will receive a “POOP Trail Run” Buff (neck gaiter). Participants will also receive a “POOP Trail Run” cowbell, because, you know, we all need more cowbell!  Half marathon runners will also get a weather resistant POOP Trail Run sticker suitable for car or water bottle.

Half marathon, 5.5 mile, and 5k awards – Top 5 overall females and males will be awarded a poop inspired prize.  Last place in all distances will be awarded a free entry for next year.

There will be four POOP emoji toys placed on the trail during the race.  Find one and you will get to keep the toy and win a “unique” gift basket!

Post Run Festivities: One of the best things about trail runs is the food!  We will have hot beverages and a hearty breakfast of steel-cut oatmeal with lots of toppings and sweet potato pancakes for all finishers and volunteers.  There will be vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options.

Timing:  To keep costs down, the race will be manually timed.  This means posting online of individual race times may take a few days.  We encourage you to track your own time if immediate results are important to you.

Cut off Time: Aid stations and finish line area will be packed up at 2:00 p.m. (approximately 5 hours after the start of the half marathon)

Ice/Snow Weather Policy:  The run will happen as scheduled regardless of temperatures, but if there is a snow or ice storm the week of the event that makes travel treacherous or the trail difficult to run, we may reschedule.  The race director will make all race decisions based on maintaining the safety of the runners and volunteers.  Check weather forecast.
