Event details and schedule

Schedule of Events:

6:00am Transition Opens

7:45 Transition Closes

8:00 8k & Duathlon begin

1 Mile Fun Run begins immediately after completion of Duathlon


8k will take place on the Choctaw Trails cross country course.  This course is home to some of the premier events in the state for high school & college teams.  The course has some slight elevation change in places.  It is mostly grass with some dirt areas.  The trail is very wide.  There are a few small ditches, but most people will be able to cross all of them without getting wet.  The course has plenty of areas for spectators to watch the action.


The Duathlon will take place on the cross country course of Choctaw Trails as well as the singletrack mountain bike course of Butts Park.  Mountain bikes are recommended, but hybrids and cyclocross bikes are allowed.  The course distance is subject to change depending on conditions of the trails the day of the race. 

The 1 Mile Fun Run will be an out-and-back starting at the official start line of the cross country course.  Parents are allowed to run with their child.  Please be mindful of older, faster runners who may be "racing" and give everyone ample room.



T-Shirts will only be guaranteed to those who pre-register by March 10th.
