Event Description

What is the Sturgeon Moon?
The Full Moon in August is called Sturgeon Moon because of the great number of this huge freshwater fish that could once be found in lakes and rivers in North America. Other names for this Full Moon include Grain Moon, Green Corn Moon, Fruit Moon, and Barley Moon, all inspired by various crops that can be harvested in August.
More Details:
The run will be a mix of pavement and gravel roads with plenty of challenging climbs. Follow the lanterns at every turn! Enjoy the moonlight reflecting off of the lakes and beaming through the tree canopies on the gorgeous (and maybe scary?) roads of Innsbrook Resort!
