This race is part of the Snap Series Races.


Note: Depending on entries, wave starts may be necessary to accommodate the number of runners on the trail.



The Snap Series began in 2019 as a way to connect with the community by providing quality Racing in a fun environment.  Currently it is a series of four races (one for each season) that tests the fitness of individuals over various types of terrains and distances. 



We want to see who is truly a Road Warrior by racing over various surfaces and distances for each season during the year.  It will test your grit and keep you from locking into the standard 5K road race training.



By running in any Snap Series race, you earn points based on your performance.  Races begin in October and end in June.  Highest Point Total for Males and Females will be calculated over the all four races in the series.


The Point Breakdown is simple:



1st Place-100 Points

2nd Place- 90 Points

3rd Place- 80 Points

Age Group:

1st in your Age Group- 50 Points

2nd in your Age Group-30 Points

3rd in your Age Group- 10 Points

4th in your Age Group- 9 Points

6th in your Age Group-7 Points

7th in your Age Group-6 Points

Medals will be given to the Top Three Overall and Top Three Age Group Winners in each of the races.  A special prize awaits the top male and female Road Warrior at the end of the series for the highest point total.  They will also receive free race entry to any Snap Series races FOR LIFE.
