About This Activity

The Cashiers Trail Mix features a 5 mile competitive trail run over diverse terrain or a 3.1762 mile team adventure run including obstacles, mud, and much more! The athlete may sign up for one or both events and must have a team of four for the adventure run.

The mountain trail run and adventure run will take place within the 2,000 acre private community of Chinquapin and will feature more than 400 feet in varying elevation changes with a start and finish at 4,200 feet. Along with the stunning scenery, runners registered for the trail run will enjoy multiple bridge and creek crossings on a wooded trail system winding through the raw and natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Participants in the adventure race will enjoy the same scenery while being challenged both physically and mentally to overcome obstacles using the help of their teammates. Be prepared to get muddy!
