Back again this year: Kids Trail Races! Our goal is to create a safe and fun environment for all to enjoy trail running, and this is the perfect way to introduce your little one to trail running. Only $5 for all kids and every kid gets a finisher medal! (0-12 years old, no shirt included)
In an effort to reduce the amount of garbage we are bringing into the Backcountry, starting this year the Wildcat Trail Races will be completely Cupless on course. After seeing the thousands of little cups we went through last year, we feel strongly that this is the best decision for the environment. We will still haveaid stations, with tons of water and nuun hydration... we just won't have paper cups. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please email Patrick Gojan, race director, at email@example.com
THIS RACE WILL BE LIMITED FOR BOTH THE 10K AND THE 10MILE RACE SO PLEASE REGISTER IN ADVANCE!
