About the Races

The Schaeffer Scramble 5K/10K/10 mile Trail Run is actually 3 different races going on at the same time.  A 5K, a 10K, and a 10 miler - pick your favorite and come out to run.

Water Stops & Energy

There will be multiple water stops along the course.  We'll also have sports drinks and a limited about of energy gels, just in case you need a little glucose boost.


All races and age divisions will have awards for the top 3 finishers.

Rules for the 4 race Sports Hoodie or 5 race Jacket 

  • It is very simple
  • Just race any 4 or 5 of the races in the Seasons Series
  • You can race the same distance, or different distances, in the different races
  • Sign up anytime.  Pre-reg, day-of, doesn't matter.  As long as you do the races, you get the swag.


There will be food, drinks, and music for everyone at the finish line. Stick around, chat a bit, and cheer for the awardees.  There is a very nice playground for the kids...

Age Divisions

Each race will be split into the following age divisions: Under 17, 18-24, 25-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+

Race Timing

This is a chip timed race. We use single-use tags incorporated into your race number - so no need to worry about returning them after the race. You've got things - like celebrating your big win! - to worry about other than turing in some timing chip.We will post preliminary times every 10 mins, after the first finisher crosses the line. Also, we'll be posting instant results to You can access Racemine results on you Smartphone within 3 min of your finish.

The Courses

The trails are hard packed single track and wide track, with a couple of good hills to overcome. You'll love passing through deep forest, open fields, and even a little bit of farmland. All 3 courses are challenging and beautiful runs.
