Course

15K

Runners will line up in McDowell Mountain Park (you must ride the bus to be granted access). The race will start promptly at 8:00 A.M.

Description

The first 5K is run in McDowell Mountain Regional Park and is extremely downhill and fast. The next 5K is rolling with a significant climb right after the 10K mark. The final 5K starts with some gentle uphill but the final stretch of the race is downhill toward the lake. The course is challenging but has the potential for fast times if run wisely. There will be four aid stations on the course with water and sports drink at approximately miles 2, 4, 6, and 8. There will be snacks, beverages, and beer (21+) at the finish area.

Teams

“Enter a team of 4 and win one scoring runners weight in BEER”

We have added several new team categories to heighten the excitement.

Divisions for 2018

Open Male, Open Female, Master Male (new), Master Female (new), Mixed Open, Mixed Master, Mixed Public Service (new).

We are proud to add the new team – Public Service.  We want to reward our fire fighters, police, medical, and teachers to join our event and compete against their own group of runners. We will also select at least one random team to win their weight in beer!  You don’t need to be a winner, you’re already a WINNER!. Enter the BIGGEST TEAM ( number of runners) and each athlete will receive a special gift for each registered runner in the 15k event.

All teams must have 4 or more runners.  At least 4 members must finish the 15k course within the 2-hour time limit to be eligible.  Each team must stay within the age guideline’s (minimum age is 12 years old).  Females may enter a male team, however, no males are allowed on a female team.  One member of the scoring team is allowed on our “Beer Scale” to win that person’s weight in Beer.

All members of the Public Service Team must be employed in their field.
