A bonfire with drinks, marshmallows await you at the finish.

Additional Information

Make sure that you have trail running shoes, and a light source. What works best for me is a head lamp combined with a small flash light. The trail is muddy in some places so trail running shoes are vital to help prevent you from slipping. You will follow green glow sticks the entire way. If you don’t see any glow sticks you’re going the wrong way. Don’t pass runners on the river trail.

After the race, there will be a bonfire and S’mores!

Charity Organization

A portion of the proceeds from this race go towards the upgrades and maintenance of the Kanawha Trace Trail through the support of Friends of Kanawha Trace. The Boy Scouts and Scout Troop leaders will be heavily involved in preparing the trails to transform this hiking trail into a running course.
