Trail-Pebble Creek 13.1: https://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/view/3689154049


For those running the half or full marathon, we highly recommend the Trail-Pebble Creek route. There is plenty of parking, traffic is light and there are very few intersections.


You will be responsible for assuring the safety of the route you select, taking care to abide by all CDC, State and local guidelines pertaining to COVID, and carrying/stocking the fuel and water you need to complete the run. Results will be based on your net time to complete the run. Thus, DO NOT turn off your watch at stops


In addition to overall and age group winners for each event, we will recognize the Double and Triple Fools who achieve the fastest overall time across the combined events. Given limited participation in each event (e.g., 30 or less), age groups will be broken down by decades (18-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70 and older). If participation is higher, we will use 5-year increments. All participants will receive a small wooden plaque.Plaques for Double and Triple Fools will recognize your special level of foolishness. 


Once you complete the run(s), fill out the results submission form via the link sent to you when registered for the event.
