Camp Night details: The gates will open at 4:00 PM ET for camping, warm-up run will start at 7 PM ET - bring a headlamp! To claim your FREE campout on Friday, Nov. 10, please select the Camping add-on while registering.
Spectators: Friends/family are free to stay and watch! Food will be available to purchase for spectators. Note: Hiking trails will be CLOSED. Spectators are NOT permitted to hike the trails and must remain in the meadow where racers start and finish the race).


We're adding a beer mile fun run after the two main races are complete. What is a beer mile? Simple: drink 4 beers and run 4 laps around our cross country "track" (aka a loop around our gravel road) as quickly as possible. We'll provide the beer, you’ll provide the psych! The beer mile will begin at 12:30 PM after the majority of runners have completed the 10K and Half Marathon, so you can certainly do both! (Obviously: this is a 21+ event, and we WILL be checking IDs before the race. If anyone under the age of 21 purchases a ticket, you will not be permitted to compete and will not be refunded.)

If you want to add-on the beer mile to your 10K or Half Marathon registration, you will see a $10 "add-on" at checkout. Click that and it will allow you to participate in both events.

If you just want to purchase a beer mile ticket and not run the 10K or Half, choose the $25 beer mile ticket. This does include food and beer at the after party (it does NOT include the hat).
