About This Activity

February 26th 5:00pm

YETI or Not? 25k will have to be postponed.

We are sad to make this announcement. Aaron and his trusty pup Miles went to run the course. The trails are in rough shape, and not safely passable.

We are waiting for word from Dupont and will announce the date ASAP! Please feel free to stop by the store and pick up your race socks and start wearing them to stay YETI!

Communications will come out from here, on facebook, and email.


Winter has finally arrived in WNC.  If at all possible we will still plan to host the race on Saturday.  We are monitoring the weather and trail conditions closely.  With the 3rd storm in two weeks passing through tomorrow, we will hold out any final decision until Thursday at noon.  We have requested a reschedule date of March 7th, that date is pending with Dupont State Recreational Forest. Please stay tuned.  We will communicate via email and the Foot Rx Asheville Facebook page.

There are 2 Aid Stations on the course.  Approximately Mile 5 and Mile 10.5. Each Aid Station will have water, gaitorade, Huma Gels and Bonk Breakers.  With current trail conditions, the pace may be much slower - please be prepared by carrying extra water and nutrition.  Wear layers!  any unwanted items can be dropped at the Aid Stations to be returned at the end of the race to the finish line. 

Aid Station 1 is located at the intersection of Turkey Knob Connector Trail and Turkey Knob Trail. 

Aid Station 2 will be at the intersection of Pine Tree Trail and Conservation Road.  For Friends and Family: this is a 2 mile walk/ride from the finish line, and easily accesable viewing/meeting spot.

There is limited Cell coverage on the course.

Due to expected trail conditions, please use caution and adjust pace as necessary.  If you are injured or unable to finish; report to the nearest Aid Station. If you are unable to do so, please have the closest runner report for you and request aid.  **Do not leave the race area with out either crossing the finish line or turning in your bib**

There is a 5 hour time limit on the course.

See you at the Start Line!


Foot Rx brings the first running of the YETTI or Not? 25k trail run to Dupont State Recreational Forest.

This 25k trail race will take place on the uncomparable beautiful single and double track trails, with a start and finish at Guion Farm Parking area.  The race utilizes almost all trail, and has minimal forest service roads.  It is a challenge - are you YETTI? 

All Yeti or Not trail series races will have aid stations, but these trail runs are designed to be basic, minimal, and fun so come prepared.
