Each race distance will include a loop on the Rexius Trail, between Martin Street and Snell Street. All races will climb to the top of the scenic Amazon Headwaters Trail to Fox Hollow Road. From there, the 6 miler, 10 miler and 16 miler will diverge onto their own unique course. I strongly recommend racers check out the course map for more specifics.
Don't worry too much about packing in a lot of aid for your race, as Eclectic Edge is including a decent spread for racers. You will find 5 fully stocked aid stations at all major trailhead junctions on the course. Each aid station will have water, GU Brew, GU energy gels, KIND bars and some additional light snacks.
Age group awards are included in this race, for each of the four distances. The overall male and female winners, and the top three in each age group/distance will receive awards. Awesome!
Entry fees are $30 for the 16 miler or 10 miler choice (youth 17 and under receive a $5 discount). For the 6 miler and 3.5 miler, adults pay $25 while youth 17 and under and racers 60 and over deduct $5. If you decide to register on race day, add $5. There will be an opportunity to purchase event t-shirts at packet pick-up race morning, which will occur 8:30 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. the morning of the race.
Definitely get registered for this event if you have been dreaming of completing a trail race. This will be my first official trail race, and I am THRILLED to be participating in this event. I hope you see you at this race!
