What you get: water on the course in 3 places, post-race snacks, and bib timing.

5K walk runners:              You'll be running/ walking on the grass/ gravel multi-purpose trail around the reservoir.  Keep the water to the left and you can’t get lost. It is a loop course. This is a great course for entry level trail runners.

10K runners:                      You will be running on grass, woodland terrain, dirt, leaves etc. on a majestic winding well marked trail through the woods around the reservoir. Much of this run is completed on single tract trails. There will be plenty of opportunities to pass the competition on straight-aways. This is a run that will take you through pines, hardwoods, open areas, with some challenges of minor hills challenges. This course is largely based on trail biking routes existing onsite.

Staggered Start: 9:00 am will be the first start of the 5 K runners. 9:10 will start the 10k runners 9:15 will start the 5k walkers. This staggered start will alleviate most runner cross traffic between the 5k and 10k runners. We ask for you to be ready to run at the expected time so we can start on time.

DESCRIPTION OF RACE: Both the 5k and 10k involve one lap of the reservoir. Both courses have common areas for water and first aid if required. Near the conclusion of the race we will be running right next to Ashton/ Black road for less than one half mile.  This surface is gravel and grass with a little tar and chip. We will have traffic signs in place but safety it will the participants responsibility.  You will be crossing 2 boat launches. There will be no marshal directing traffic. This will be at your own risk.

Time Limit: All participants must finish within 2 hours of the start of the 10k.

Cancellation: In the event the race is cancelled, a notice will be posted on the internet at www.BigWhiteTrailer.com and at www.BullDamTrailRun.net/

Awards:  There will be a prize for first finisher male and female for the two running events. There will be no prizes for the walking event. It is just for fun. Your money goes toward the cost of the race.  Any leftover monies will be given to Saint Greg’s Boy Scout Troop 82 of North East.

Day of the race entries make checks payable to: Boy Scout Troop 82
