Event details and schedule


This is a super fun and slightly challenging 5K off road trail run course that will begin in front of the Cloudspin Lounge at Whiteface. Participants will follow the well-marked course, following the red arrows through the games and rides of Oktoberfest to the Mixing Bowl lift. This part of the course is a hilly section that will get the runners blood pumping and heart beating, moving them up the mountain. From the top of the mixing bowl, the trail will follow a service road to the bottom of “Tower Ten Hill.” As the trail moves across the mountain on Lower Valley, Brookside and Boreen, runners will be rewarded with beautiful scenic vistas before entering a wooded section in the Gold Glades that will follow some twisty single track biking and hiking trails. The trails will exit the woods for a loop around the Bear Den parking lot and then up to the Kid’s Kampus Lodge. The trail will then continue down the Home Run Trail and finish back at the Cloudspin Lounge in front of cheering crowds, where a nice mug of beer or soda awaits. Awards will take place shortly after the completion in all age categories. Athletes are also encouraged to dress up in German-themed outfits.
