- Time: 8pm - 11pm
- Registration: $35
- Limited to 120 registrants
- Fun prizes for winners
- Course: Approximately 1.5 mile loop with 600-ish feet of elevation gain. About half a mile is pavement and the remainder is mowed grass. Because of the drastic descent, trail shoes with aggressive tread are the ideal choice for shoes for this race.

What you get for Registration:

- 3 hours to complete 1.5 miles as many times as you want
- Awesome swag
- Real bathrooms
- Aid station goodies
- Great volunteers
- S'mores on the deck!
-Beer & food for sale! (cards only) (vegan mac & cheese!)
- A big party to cheer you on!
- And, free camping at our group campsite is available at Gifford Pinchot State Park, just 10 minutes from the course. Party on!

For those who are familiar with Ski Roundtop:

We'll be over by the Lodge at the bottom of the Exhibition slope. Set up a spot for your stuff at the base of the tubing slope. We'll start at the Lodge, run behind the Lodge and across the parking lot about half a mile, go up Minuteman/Lower&Upper Lafayette about half a mile, across the top, then down Ramrod/Exhibition about half a mile so your whole crew can watch. The Lodge will be open with an awesome view from the patio - the slope down will be lit!

For those not familiar with Ski Roundtop:

We'll have a Start/Finish next to a ski lodge. The Lodge has bathrooms and plenty of space for your whole crew inside or outside to come and watch. You'll have about half a mile of flat, half a mile up a ski slope, then half a mile down a ski slope. Your crew will have a great view of you running downhill to the finish with a lighted downhill.

And, the required details....

- Headphones are allowed when used responsibly, but this event will be more fun without!
- Headlamps/lighting is required. Parts of the course are lighted and parts are not. Many people find that poles are very helpful for the descent on this course.
- Leave no trace - Absolutely NO litter bugs allowed!
- Bib must be clearly visible on the front of the body
- NO course cutting
- You'll sign a waiver on registration, and I'll have you sign another waiver for the venue upon arrival. Pretend you're famous and sign all the things.
- I can't do deferrals, refunds, or transfers. A lot of work goes into the race, and we work hard to keep the cost low.

Lastly, random details....

- Hit me up if you want to volunteer. It might just be more fun than running it!
- This race is part of the York Ridge Runners Trail Series and will result in series points.
- This is a great training run for Labor Pains or any September race! Get some practice in the night and make new friends.
