Supporting running in the metro Richmond area
The Willis River Runs are free. They are no longer part of RRRC. There will be no awards or shirts, but, we may try to produce a list of finishers. The 35K follows an out and back course of the Willis River Trail starting at the Bear Creek Lake State Park Cumberland Multiuse Trail head. The 50K adds the Bearcreek 10 mile course to the 35K run. Bear Creek Lake State Park is in Cumberland County VA. The park is located about one hour west of Richmond using route 60. These are semi-primitive trails that require attention to both footing and navigation. That is the allure of the Willis River Trails.
You will need to pay the $4.00 park fee (Please bring exact change). Both races start at 8:00 AM. Please bring your favorite race food to use for the aide stations and finish area. Water and sport drinks would be great too.
