15K Solo Run

The 15K is an intermediate level single loop bike/run course comprising some road and mainly single track trails. Including Upper Lost Frog, Lost Lake, Riley Lake Lower Lost Frog. The gravel start from the nursery is only about 2.5K from the trailhead and from there you are ushered into the gentle and smooth runnable trail of the Snowden forest. This single track is considered to be a very fun and fast intermediate trail, set in a very beautiful, quiet and remote area.  A great event for those looking to lose themselves in nature, without the worry of ever actually getting lost!

There will be one aid station for the 15K runner. Freds Aid station will be stocked with usual fare including chips, fruit, gummies, water, coke, electrolyte and Cliff Bars.  These food items are probable, however, not guaranteed.  Runners should be self supporting and carry necessary hydration and fuel for themselves.  Aid stations are cup-less in effort to keep waste at a minimum. You must carry your own reusable cup if you would like to consume beverages at the aid station.  Collapsable cups are inexpensive, and available at several outdoor retailers, please come prepared.
