Event Description

A collaboration between Endless Endurance and Second Capital Running. 

6 Hour and Half Marathon trail races through the Parvin wilderness.

Expect the ultimate trail party. Expect a mess.



The course is almost all on the trails aside from a short section of pavement. This is a fast and mostly flat route that has a few sandy and rooted sections with a mixture of single track and wider open sections. 
The half marathon is a lollipop course, where you'll run two loops of the lollipop and then come back to the finish. There will be an aid station at miles 1.5, 6.5, and 11.5.
The 6 Hour course is on a 5.5ish mile loop with an aid station at the start/finish around mile 4.


2 person teams for the 6 Hour Relay. Relay exchange for the 6 Hour happens back at the start/finish line on the Danna Farm. There is no minimum or maximum on how many laps each team member must run.
2 person teams for the Half Marathon Relay. Relay exchange for the Half Marathon happens at the main aid station near the 1.5 mile mark. Runner #1 will run the lead out from the start line and complete 1 loop before handing off to Runner #2, who will then run 1 loop and the lead back to the finish line.


All runners will receive a HOT MESS medal, aluminum canteen, and winners will receive trophies (Top 3 M/F Overall only). HOT MESS Trucker Hats from BOCO are available as add-ons.
