Race Day Information - For runners coming to Choctaw Trails/Watson XC Park from Clinton or Springridge, be aware that the bridge is out on McRaven west of the Choctaw Trails entrance. There is about a five-minute detour around the bridge that will bring you to the entrance from the other side, so you will be turning right into Choctaw Trails.
In addition to our 5K and 1 Mile Fun R(un), we will also be offering 25K and 50K options, with solo and relay categories. So whether you want to run or walk a little or a lot, make plans now to join us on Saturday, August 28th at Choctaw Trails to support a great cause! 25/50K information and registration HERE.
START: All distances will start at 8:00 a.m
AID STATIONS: There will be no aid stations on the 5k course. We will have bottles of water at the start/finish that runners can carry with them on the course.
REGISTRATION: We do not offer refunds, transfers, or deferrals. Race day registration is available but we can’t guarantee a t-shirt so please register online by August 20 to ensure you get a t-shirt.
COURSE: 5k loop on mostly flat, singletrack trails with a few small hills. The majority of the course is in the shade.
AWARDS: We will have top three male and female overall awards, with the male and female winners at each distance receiving shoes from either Fleet Feet or Buffalo Peak, as well as top three in ten-year age groups for the 5k.
