Event Description

We are excited to announce the second year of our spring trail run, happening at a new trail location this year. The event will happen at the Horry County Panther Run trail which is behind the Carolina Forest Recreation Center. The Apex Trail Run will be a 5K (run or walk) and a 6 hour laps challenge. For this event we will have a competitive heat and a non competitive heat for the 5K to allow the faster participants to get out on the trail in front of the larger group. The 6 hour laps challenge race will start at 7:50am and will continue running the 5K course until the 1:50pm cut off time. The overall winner of the race is the person completing the most laps in the shortest time. We will give away 1st, 2nd, 3rd place awards for both male and female categories. Each runner must start their last lap by 1:30pm. 

These trails are beginner friendly and flat but also provide a unique challenge and a fun trail experience with all of the switchbacks and grassy surfaces. All participants will receive a t-shirts and a commemorative finisher’s medal.
