No refunds. No transfers of bibs. No rolling over of registrations. This is a fundraiser, so if you sign up and cannot participate, consider your registration fee a donation to the Ashland Woodland and Trails Association (AWTA).

The Bandersnatch 5K is an excellent first trail race for a runner new to trails, and still challenging for a more experienced person. This is NOT an easy 5K race; is it not flat nor is it fast. There are some substantial climbs (800+ feet in total gain), and much of the single track consists of multiple switchbacks. You will see some beautiful views above Lithia Park, but you will definitely have earned them. It is a loop course, the first half of which is essentially all uphill, with the second half coming back down. There really are no flat sections in this race...a true Ashland course if we do say so ourselves
