Death Ridge Brewery and Verdun Adventure Bound present The Death of Summer Cross Country Challenge. The XC course begins and ends at Death Ridge Brewery and includes a significant portion of the Verdun Adventure Bound Cross Country Course. If you keep an eye out, you might actually see some Emu and a Zebra (no, really!) as the course cuts through a neighbor's property.
1st Prize: One Year Membership at Death Ridge Brewery ($125 value)!
Top 3 Men and Top 3 Women will win a Beer (or age-legal beverage), on Verdun! We love our runners!
Race T-Shirt included.
Cross Country 6K
Why 6K? Because that's how an easy to follow and naturally flowing course measured out. We could have made it a 5K, but it wouldn't be as fun. 6K is 1000 meters better! NOTE: Course distance is approximate.
This race is an introduction to the wonderful beer of Death Ridge Brewery, with all race proceeds going to support Verdun Adventure Bound. Verdun is a educational 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to support youth and adult personal growth incorporating experiential learning and stewardship of the land on its 66 acre retreat facility. Check them out at the link below.
$30 pre-registration through noon August 28 (race day).
$35 on race day at DRB.
Race T-Shirt included for those who pre-reg by August 18 at 11:59AM. We will still collect T-Shirt size info, and we will have extra shirts, but they are not guaranteed after the cut-off.
The surface varies from close cut grass to a short section of rough trail and several kilometers of the well groomed trail in Verdun. Verdun has a beautiful cross country course with just enough hills to make it interesting. You will be in and out of the woods, along side two ponds, and over a stream or two (bridged, of course). See the course map below.
