Come run on the New London Tech Trails for the 5th annual Twisted Trail 10k. Stay afterward for age group awards, food and fellowship.
We have a great location lined up - nice trail system - and gracious hosts with the Bedford County Parks and Recreation.
Come run one of Bedford County's newest and nicest trail systems.
We will have both male and female shirt sizes.
We are VERY excited to host the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) Virginia State Cross Country Championship!
Especially exciting is showing the state of Virginia our "neck of the woods" here in Forest, a great community in Bedford County.
RRCA State Championship Awards will be given to:
Top Open finishers of each gender
Top Master's runner (age 40+)
Grand Master's runner (age 50+)
Senior Grand Master's runner (60+)
The course will run all three of the loops at the New London Technical Trails: Orange, Blue, and Green.
Turns will be marked with streamers and there will be course marshals at tricky points.
The trails are well-used, feature minimal trip hazards, and are still relatively new as they were completed less than 4 years ago.
There will be at least one, but maybe two water stops along the course.
