15 Fall Trail Races Under 15 Miles - Page 9
Thunderbird Moonlight 6K, 10K and Daylight Half Marathon
St. Francisville, LA
Dec. 14, 2014
FORGE Racing, based out of Baton Rouge, puts on these epic races on an aptly-named trail called “The Beast” that twists, turns and features an elevation profile that race director Jeff Beck likens to “a heartbeat, it’s so erratic.” He adds, “People think that the South is all flat, but you’d be surprised.” In an effort to introduce as many runners to the joys of trail running as possible, FORGE focuses on injecting a lot of fun into this weekend of trail-running festivities. Runners camp out at the park and enjoy great food and music all evening, with home-brew kegs provided by Brenton Day, aka “The Ale Runner” of Running Monk Brewing Company. Because the moonlight 6K and 10K take place on Saturday evening and the daylight half marathon on Sunday morning, it is possible to do the “deuce” and complete both races.
