Event Description

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.

Race Course
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.  

We will have age and gender group awards as follows:

Male: 3 places
Female: 3 places
Male: 13 and under, 14-18, 19-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 70+
Female: 13 and under, 14-18, 19-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 70+
