Nothing like a couple of grueling afternoon (1 PM) trail races in the dead of winter at Springmaid Mountain to get the juices flowing. From the race organizers:
Blue Ridge Mountains and Winter Running! Rocky, Roots, Hills, Possible Snow, Ice, Rain, Mud – who knows? A river crossing near the end of the 8 miler, no river crossing in the 5k. A warm gathering after finish – hot will be beverages provided, and maybe a bonfire. Parking inside Springmaid. No shirt.
- AWARDS: Everyone gets an award that is Made in America. Top M/F overall get award.
- Race will be held on Saturday (unless a blizzard happens, then it will be moved to Sunday).
- Decision will be made on race day morning if inclement weather.
- NO REFUNDS. IT WILL BE DIFFICULT. NO WHINING.
