About This Activity

The Dire Wolf is a challenging trail run consisting of hills, rocks, roots, a rugged downhill switchback, and a shallow creek crossing.  The course is a mix of fire trail, single-track, and grass.  Runners of all speeds and abilities are welcome, but novice trail runners be advised that this course is not your average run in the park.

Awards ceremony held immediately after last runner crosses finish line.  Unique wolf-themed awards to male and female overall winners.  Medals to top 3 male/female in following age groups: 0-19; 20-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60+

Start/finish, registration, and portable bathrooms all conveniently located near parking area.  Post-race refreshments provided for all participants.  Emergency medical services on standby.

Entry fee $25 if registered by midnight September 26, 2015 and will include long-sleeve DryBlend t-shirt; $30 after cutoff and on race day while shirts last; $20 on race day after shirts are gone.

All proceeds from the race benefit the Octorara High School cross country and track & field teams, and supports our efforts to renovate our high school track, which is in such poor shape that we have not had a home track meet in four years.
