This event is a favorite of all North Carolina trail runners. We have seen some blazing fast times but don’t be fooled as the course isn’t a walk in the park. The gorgeous scenery makes this event suitable for the veteran and beginning trail runner. The backdrop for the race is Bur Mil Park, which is a great place for the family to come spend the day in the park while you are off running in the woods. Bur Mil has 3 par golf course, driving range, great playground and nature center.
The event has 3 races including half marathon, 40K and 40 mile. The 40k and 40 mile events also feature a relay division so you can grab a couple of buddies and tackle the event as a relay.
Post race participants enjoy a feast, beer and celebration. The race medals and race shirts are sure to be among the best you’ve seen. Overall and age group awards are given to the top finishers in all events. If you run 2 out of the 3 following races in 2019, you'll get a Hoka 1/4 zip to boot! Owl's Roost Rumble, Triple Lakes Trail Race, and Run at the Rock!
