Cross Country 5K
Feb 22 will be cold, no doubt, but you can sleep late, let it warm up a little, and then race a cross country 5K at Verdun Adventure Bound at 11:00 AM.
To take the chill off, hot chocolate will be served around a roaring fire at the finish line.
Proceeds go to support Verdun Adventure Bound. They are a non-profit, providing a great venue for all sorts of fun activity. Check them out at the link below.
$25 pre-registration through noon February 20.
$30 on race day.
Long Sleeve Race T-Shirt included for those who pre-reg by a cut-off date (to be determined... we're talking to our supplier).
Verdun has a beautiful cross country course with just enough hills to make it interesting. There is a lot of variety in surface and terrain... in and out of the woods, along side two ponds, over a couple streams (don't worry... foot bridges). See the map below for the expected course (which may change if conditions dictate).
We will have age and gender group awards as follows:
Open (male and female*): 15 and under, 16-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 70+
Female: 15 and under, 16-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 70+
*That's right, ladies. If you beat the guys, you get to eat their lunch!
NOTE: Runners can win in multiple categories.
