It's hard to believe that this is all ready the 5th year of trail racing at Wooster Memorial Park!

Race proceeds will once again benefit the Friends of Wooster Memorial Park as they keep the park up to date with trail maintenance, clean-up and land development. But we all know the most beneficial way to help out the trails-run them! And we have plenty of options for that - a 12.5k, 25k and 50k and even the 5k!

This is a loop style course featuring a 7.75 mile loop with approximately 1000ft. of climb per loop. Click here for the course elevation (courtesy of Danny Preising) The course is mostly made up of single track trails with some very technical treks, but some awesome views! As seen in the pictures above, there are creek crossings, you'll encounter your fair share of steep hills, lots of downhill and probably some mud! That's what trail running is all about!

We remain positive and optimistic that we will see drastic changes in the social climate in the coming months in regards to spread of the virus and how it effects group events in our area. Our intent is to hold our event as it has always been held in the past assuming it is responsible to do so in March 2021. Our main priority is to raise funds for Wooster Memorial Park while creating unforgettable in-person racing opportunities for our runners, however we also need to be socially responsible and ensure that we are creating a safe environment for runners, volunteers, spectators, and community members. With that at the forefront, we reserve the right to adjust start times, aid stations details, packet pickup details, post race party details, and any other group gathering facets of the race to ensure we can host the event on-site while keeping everyone safely distanced. There will be no surprises and any adjustments to the current plan will be 100% transparent and sent out to all who are registered. In the end, we also want runners to be able to register with confidence knowing that when they register and pay, they will get a first class experience at Wooster Memorial Park regardless of changes necessary for COVID-19. WE WILL WORK HARD FOR YOU.
