About This Activity

Cross Country 5K
Feb 22 will be cold, no doubt, but you can sleep late, let it warm up a little, and then race a cross country 5K at Verdun Adventure Bound at 11:00 AM.  
To take the chill off, hot chocolate will be served around a roaring campfire at the finish line next to the pavilion.

This race is a fundraiser with all proceeds going to support Verdun Adventure Bound.  Verdun is a educational 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to support youth and adult personal growth incorporating experiential learning and stewardship of the land on its 66 acre retreat facility. Check them out at the link below.

$25 pre-registration through noon February 20.
$30 on race day.
Long Sleeve Race T-Shirt included for those who pre-reg by a cut-off date (to be determined... we're talking to our supplier).

Race Course
Verdun has a beautiful cross country course with just enough hills to make it interesting.  There is a lot of variety in surface and terrain... in and out of the woods, along side two ponds, over a couple streams (don't worry... foot bridges).  See the map below for the expected course (which may change if conditions dictate).

We will have age and gender group awards as follows:

Open: 5 places
Female: 3 places
Open (male and female*): 13 and under, 14-18, 19-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 70+
Female: 13 and under, 14-18, 19-30, 31-40, 41-50, 51-60, 61-70, 70+
*That's right, ladies.  If you beat the guys, you get to eat their lunch!  
NOTE: Runners can win in multiple categories.
