About the race
This is one of the Roanoke Valley’s most unique events. The course will take you through 4 miles of the IMBA designed trails. The course consists of 3 miles of twisty rolling single track and 1 mile of grass and asphalt roads. These trails will be marked with reflective arrows, glow sticks, and the occasional surprise. Every effort will be taken so that you will easily be able to find your way and stay on course.  
A light source is mandatory; it is recommended that you have at least a headlamp or flashlight. I personally think it is best to carry one of each. A headlamp to see where you are going and a flashlight to cast shadows and give you depth perception (easier to see those sneaky roots and rocks).  We will leave this up to your personal preference. It is recommended that you try your choice of light source under similar conditions prior to running the race.

PLEASE NOTE—Headlamps, flashlights, and any other light source will not be provided by race management.

Age brackets for the races include, for both male and female:
14 and under; 15-19, 20-24; 25-29; 30-34; 35-39; 40-44; 45-49; 50-54; 55-59; 60 and over

The top 3 overall male and female finishers for each race will receive distinctive awards.
The top three finishers in each age group will receive a medal recognizing their achievement.
