This quirky course, a hybrid of “a traditional trail race and a Ski Cross race,”  as explained on the website, is a short 1.4 kilometers long. But don’t be fooled–this isn’t an easy race. Designed to bring runners “back to the most primitive form of racing,” participants will advance depending on how they fare in five “heats,” each a heart-pounding, quad-busting 110 feet up the course’s single hill. Awards, including cash prizes, will be announced following the five heats. Spectators are welcome and encouraged!
