If you’re thinking about this race be sure to eat your Wheaties, maybe pack a lunch, a change of clothes.
FROM THE RACE ORGANIZERS
Blue Ridge Mountains and Winter Running! Rocky, Roots, Hills, Possible Snow, Ice, Rain, Mud – who knows? YES, we will cross the river near the finish (about a 20 yard crossing through shallow water, followed shortly by a welcoming bon fire). It’s 8 miles plus, maybe closer to 9. The 5K will not cross the river. Not for the whiners. Every finisher gets a nice award that is made in America. Warm gathering after finish. Hot beverages provided. No shirt. 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.
